I've just updated the majority of the SL44 server to SL45. I have four SL44
servers left to upgrade, which will complete by the end of the week.

It's a thing to try though, I will try on one of the SL45 servers another
update run for perl-Apache-ASP and email here the results.

I appreciate your continuing suggestions. As suggested in another email,
upgrading to SL5 is not an option for this setup, I'd need to build new SL5
servers and run them in test for months before I could consider SL5 a
"working" solution.

As an admin, I never dive from a platform without first testing how deep the
water is, it could be shallow with sharp rocks just under the surface.
