You may think that is a very simple piece of code -- I don't. 8-)
The reason is that the subtotal() routine goes very far afield; it
opens what seems like every table in the catalog.

Try this and see if the last subtotal() call works:

	[perl tables="products pricing all the tables you need"]
		## Initialize the tables first

	<!-- Make sure all tables are opened -->
	<!-- [subtotal] -->


I am surprised it works in non-prefork mode, as that shouldn't make
any difference. You don't mention your database type -- Postgres? It
usually is more finicky.
