This is by design; it's part of how PreFork mode works. It does not reset 
all variables between each request as part of its ability to keep working 
without reloading everything each time.

Any variables that you want to be global, in that they're available for 
the whole page request but not between requests, should go into the 
special %$::Instance hash.

See Vend::Server::start_page() and server_page() for how this gets cleaned 
out between each page request.
