Description of problem:
I am writing Perl scripts using Stronghold/3.1-RHL Apache/1.3.19
 and mod_perl/1.24_01 on an i686 with RedHat 7.1.  When I parse
the cgi environment for value pairs is where the problem occurs.
Values from previous POSTs by unrelated users are showing up in
the value pairs for the current session.  As this is a forms
based email script it could be quite embarassing to say the
least!  Your help is appreciated.
Regards,

John Hoffman

This is a side effect of how mod_perl functions.  Please make sure you read 
the included documentation.
