I haven't worked with Solaris for a number of years, as almost no one seems
to use it for web servers anymore.

The underlying problem is with Perl and how it interacts with locking.
If using fcntl locking doesn't fix the problem -- as it did with later
Solaris installations back in 1999 or 2000 -- then probably nothing
is going to fix it.

Note what you see if you search on google for "perl solaris lock".
