I think you'll still have problems. You still have two different modules with
the same name loaded into the same mod_perl server, right? That's a recipe
for disaster, I think. I believe the only solutions are to use the same
modules for all vhosts or name the modules differently for each vhost. But I
don't really do any vhosting, so I'm really just blowing smoke.

I'm a little concerned about your use of set_up_table(). Not sure if it's
related to the problem you are experiencing or not, but I know it can cause
problems. I'm not a proponent of that method, especially in a mod_perl
context. I always define my CDBI classes manually.
