This code will give the same error, but the problem almost certainly
lies in Net::Braintree.  The fact is that you cannot create a new CGI
object from within a Safe block of code, and Net::Braintree is trying to
do this.  It is possible that if this only happens at the initialization
phase of the module that you can initialize it outside of the Safe block
and store a global object for this purpose, otherwise you're going to
have a hard time calling Net::Braintree from inside Safe.

At the end of the day it comes down to what Josh already said, we really
need to see your code that interfaces with Net::Braintree in order to be
able to figure out what's going on.
