in thread Apache::Registry - shared variable?

Also, one of Apache::Registry's shortcomings was a confusing and somewhat incomplete approach to sharing variables among sessions. Since the code is cached, the variables aren't automatically re-initialized each time the script is run. This might solve your problem:

my $foo ; ## usually ok in perl my $foo = undef ; ## an Apache::Registry requirement?

If you're not committed to Apache::Registry. Consider an alternative. Also, the mod_perl mailing list:

      Yup, Registry is used to run .cgi's under mod_perl but isn't a cure-all, it won't magically make sure you're using correctly or that you're Coping with Scoping -- see (this which you probably already saw) for some issue CGI to mod_perl Porting. mod_perl Coding guidelines and tweak your code
