I updated to the latest svn and removed the "2>/dev/null" to try to
troubleshoot my setup and found the following error in the logs:

[Mon Jun 04 17:24:47 2007] [error] ModPerl::Util::exit: (120000) exit
was called at modules/stream/handler.pl line 137Compilation failed in
require at /var/www/mythweb/mythweb.pl line 60.\n

any ideas?
