What version of perl are you using? If its 5.10.x then from your stack
trace I would guess that you've been bitten by the bug that was fixed

Unfortunately, that was committed just after mod_perl-1.30 was released
and 1.31 still hasn't been released yet. Try manually applying that
change to your mod_perl source and rebuilding it (or else get the
current dev version from SVN).
