  Hey Stephen, 

  This definitely sounds like a problem you're going to need a
  debugger to figure out.  Check out this article I wrote on
  debugging and profiling mod_perl applications:

  You'll need to install the Apache::DB module from CPAN, but
  once you get it setup and running it gives you access to
  the full Perl debugger. 

  Hope this helps!
