Sounds similar to a problem I encountered using
Apache2::AuthCookieDBI. In my case it was related to Apache issuing
subrequests for directory requests. Check out this thread:

My fix was to override the authenticate method to explicitly set the user for
subrequests, something like this:
  my $status = $self->SUPER::authenticate($r);
  $r->user($r->main->user) if (defined $r->main and defined $r->main->user);
