[swish-e] swish search returns empty page since changing to mod_perl

Hi folks,
the swish search returns an empty document since i changed my apache config to handle my twiki requests via mod_perl. twiki was very slow before, and mod_perl gave the expected performance boost, but swish search does not return a content page anymore

The swish search is initiated via a html form:
<form method="get" action="" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" class="form">

The call to the search engine is configured as described in
The http.conf extracts:

    use lib '/opt/twiki/twiki/bin/searchtools';  # location of the swish.cgi file
    use lib '/usr/local/lib/swish-e/perl'; # '/home/yourname/swish-e/example/modules';  # modules required by swish.cgi
    require "swish.cgi";

<Location /searchtools/ >
    PerlSetVar Swish_Conf_File /opt/twiki/twiki/bin/searchtools/swish-cgi.config
    allow from all
    SetHandler perl-script
    PerlHandler SwishSearch

further information:
swish-e Version: 2.4.5
operating system: Linux 2.6.19 #3 SMP 

I would appreciate some valuable hints to the reasons for my problem.

best regards, markus
