Slightly off topic) Can someone point me to someone who might help me figur out a weird HTML ssi Perl cgi thing I'm seeing?

Can someone point me to someone who might help me
figure out a weird HTML ssi Perl cgi thing I'm seeing?

I have an HTML page (validated as 3.2), with 3 ssi's embedded in
it, e.g.,
           <!--#exec cgi="cgi-bin/welcA"-->

(A) One at the top of the page which just adds one to a
counter file.

(B) One in the middle of the page that logs information
from the CGI environment to several files (does a lot more
work than either of the other two.)

(C) One like #A at the bottom of the page.

All are Perl scripts.

Every so often A and C seem *not* to be executing
when B executes.  For instance, B may execute 100 times
and A and C add 96 to their respective counters.

The results consistently seem to be A=C but A < B.

I would expect, if anything, A >= B >= C (if the
page got partially loaded sometimes.

Can anyone pass this query on to someone who might
be able to shed some light on it for me, or tell me
who to contact?

THank you.

I apologize for using this list for this extrinsic purpose.

I can only say that I religiously validate my website,
for alomst 5 years how (over 400 pages...), so I
would hope for some "understanding"...
