Sorry for the delay getting back to you : since I wiped and re-installed the machine, I created
a virtual machine with a 32bit image, so that took a little time. And, guess what? I can't
reproduce the problem in the VM. 

Also, it only appeared in mod_perl, not perl.

The bug may have to do with a cpan upgrade I did on the machine, that generated quite a bit
of errors, and messed my system somehow.
