I can't really suggest anything for the main question on this thread,
but I wanted to mention that mod_perl 1 only supported a single
thread, i.e. running on Windows means running one thread that all
requests had to line up for.  By contrast, mod_perl 2 runs multiple
threads so it may bring threading issues in CPAN libraries to light
where they didn't show up in mod_perl 1.
