Internal install issues

Yo :)

I have an internal site install of LJ, and am having more and more errors as I upgrade from CVS.

namely, userinfo.bml now returns "Unknown user
The username dormando is not currently registered."
when trying to access any accounts. Most other functions work.

Also, members of communities can no longer edit entries posted to communities (edit button is greyed out), and we are unable to add syndicated accounts, saying that the account already exists (it doesn't, the code is failing somewhere in the username check code).

I'm running perl 5.6.1 and apache 1.3.28, with latest mod_perl. Does LJ not support perl 5.6 anymore, or are these bugs related to a possible install problem? I'm heading down to the facility in an hour and upgrade the whole machine from scratch, but if I can fix this by re-doing code _somewhere_, that would be excellent, and will save my day.

Silly for me to be asking questions, but I have no spare time to debug..
