Value for session set in CGI::Session is undefby bradcathey (Prior)

bradcathey has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've posted several questions about CGI::Session over the past months, but they have all been different issues. Here's a new one that I've distilled it down to the code below.
Question: Why is the value of a param not get past the subroutine that sets it?
You can see that I test for the successful setting of the param in the routine, but it returns undef when I am back in the calling module. Note: the cookie is set and a session id generated. A cat of the actual session file in /tmp shows everything is there before I try to read it. And you can see I tried flush() and setting the cookie directly, all to no avail.
I use CGI::Application::Plugin::Session in newer projects, which has lazy loading (not initiated until called), but this doesn't seem to be the same deal). I've read the lovely CGI::Session::Tutorial several times, but no approach seems to work. Thoughts?
