I've seen mod_perl as a DSO misbehave in very subtle ways on Tru64
Unix--problems which went away completely when mod_perl was linked
into apache.  From experience, I believe it is true that mod_perl as a
DSO *may* have serious stability problems, depending a great deal on
the platform (and possibility the perl build options as well).

Just because you haven't seen it doesn't make it a myth...
