Yes commenting the LoadModule line out of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.load fixes the issue as well. Unfortunately we need both PHP and mod_perl on these servers though. I'm still trying to figure out what is is about the php5 module that's breaking tie() in code running under mod_perl but haven't had any luck yet. I'm still not sure if this is a mod_perl, mod_php or Apache problem. It's pretty simple to reproduce given this information.
