Something isn't right... Did this start when you added your new 
usertag?  Are you sure that isn't hosed?  Here is a tag I use for 
logging of events:

[root at mml2 usertag]# cat iclog.tag
UserTag iclog Order one two three thereset
UserTag iclog Routine <<EOR
  my @para = @_;
  my $ts = $Tag->time( {}, '%Y%m%d%H%M' );
  $Tag->log( { file => '/tmp/iclog'}, "iclog: " . $ts . " host: " . 
$Session->{ohost} . " " . "page: " . $Global::Variable->{MV_PAGE} . " " 
. join("|", @_) );

and within embedded Perl, I call it from the HTML page like:

$Tag->iclog("StartupCountry: " . $Scratch->{StartupCountry} );

and it works just fine...

Perhaps you should 'backout' your changes and isolate what broke and when...
