test1$ /usr/bin/cpan Storable

  Will get your Storable for /usr/bin/perl on host test1 up to date  
with your other Storables.

Is the session directory shared by both hosts?

I abandoned the use of Storable when I ran into problems with a mix of  
i686 hosts and x86_64 hosts sharing the same session directory. I  
don't remember the details nor did I do much debugging. I just stopped  
using Storable for sessions and the problems went away.
