in thread XML::Simple oddness

That code was not cut and paste, I am aware of how scope works inside mod_perl $r was just an example of a Apache::Request object and is defined correctly.

I am almost sure that this problem is not coming from my code, considering that I am using XML::Simple in the same way outside of mod_perl and it works correctly

p.s. yes everything is defined with a my()

    Woops... Not sure why I focused on $r, which shouldn't be related to the problem here. Sorry. :)

    All of your variables are declared with my... Are any of the variables declared outside of a subroutine, and then used inside a subroutine?

    my $var = rand; sub do_something { print "$var\n"; }
    That will lead to the 'Variable "$var" will not stay shared' error, and $var in do_something will keep the same value it had the first time do_something was called, including previous calls from earlier executions of the script in the same mod_perl fork.

    Since the behavior is different under mod_perl, my first thought is to check on the differences between running normally and running under mod_perl... If that's not it, I'll work on thinking of other possible causes for this odd behavior. Although at that point you may want someone with more experience with the XML modules. :)
