Yeah... Basically when running under ModPerl::Registry it tries to
treat your script exactly like it is running under cgi.  So when the
script finish it runs end blocks.  When the next request comes in you
still want those end blocks to run.

Yeah... I think you are right, I was completely over thinking things I think.
