[mod_python] Differences between mod_python under Windows and Linux?

Hi.  New to the list.

We're porting an old mod_python application from Windows to Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux 4.  That means Apache 2.0.5, Python 2.3.5, mod_python 
3.1.3, MySQLdb 1.2.0, and MySQL 4.0.  So far the issues haven't been 
major, but...

It appears that under Windows, when we create objects on a page with a 
form, when that page gets called again to handle the submit, that object 
is still there, as if it were running as a persistent web service. 
Under Linux, this is not happening, and it is as if the page is executed 
anew each invocation (which makes more sense to me).

I'll admin I inherited this code, so I could be missing something in the 
code, but can someone confirm that there is no difference between how 
things work on those two platforms?

Thanks in advance.  If I hear that there is no difference, I may throw 
together a small example program to demonstrate.  Hope that's OK with 
this list.

Thanks in advance.
