Probably not in /var/log/messages then - that's why I put a question
mark there.  It depends how your logging is set up.  Where does Apache
send its 'error log' on your system?  That's where it will be.  It's
confusing to have debug messages going to /var/log/messages and yet
the other (Apache) log stuff going somewhere else, but that's the way
things are at present.

You also might want to try putting the same print statement after this

    next unless ':' eq shift @times; #drop the colon

If there isn't an element in the array that contains just a single
colon character, it will shift everything out of it leaving it empty...
