Sorry, my example wasn't very helpful in that respect. Yes, you are right about it controlling the cache capacity. However, even when I set it to large values (100, 1000, 100000 etc) it makes no difference.

After some digging around in the code for LWP::UserAgent (5.835) I found this

sub clone { my $self = shift; my $copy = bless { %$self }, ref $self; # copy most fields delete $copy->{handlers};
    delete $copy->{conn_cache};
# copy any plain arrays and hashes; known not to need recursive co +py for my $k (qw(proxy no_proxy requests_redirectable)) { next unless $copy->{$k}; if (ref($copy->{$k}) eq "ARRAY") { $copy->{$k} = [ @{$copy->{$k}} ]; } elsif (ref($copy->{$k}) eq "HASH") { $copy->{$k} = { %{$copy->{$k}} }; } } if ($self->{def_headers}) { $copy->{def_headers} = $self->{def_headers}->clone; } # re-enable standard handlers $copy->parse_head($self->parse_head); # no easy way to clone the cookie jar; so let's just remove it for + now $copy->cookie_jar(undef); $copy; }

So it looks like the conn_cache data is not inherited when the UserAgent is cloned.

If I comment this line out (delete $copy->{conn_cache};), my problems go away. Could a more enlightened member tell me whether or not this looks like a bug, or am I just barking mad and fiddling with something with terrible unintended consequences?
