Server side DK4 Perl error when attempting to list messages

Want to record this error before trying to refresh the page to see if it's intermittent:

Can't call method "n_last_messages" on an undefined value at /www/dk4-perl/current/lib/ScoopDK/Data/ line 43.

Got the above error when attempting to list messages:[username]/messages

There was a previous instance of this error a few years ago. so perhaps it's a really obscure edge case.

Now I'll refresh the page... Yes, it displayed correctly. Only unusual thing on the local side was that the initial request was done as the browser was starting up -- this is Firefox and I was doing "restore previous session" as I usually do.

    Hi there.
    Thanks for the report.
    The reason probably isn't so obscure; it's more likely that people don't try to do this sort of task very often. It's a problem related to the one that arises more noticeably in connection with sending messages. Basically, the handoff between the main site and these old Perl pages doesn't work reliably. Not related to the browser, and not related to the cache; it's just a problem with Perl.
    Glad you got it to work relatively quickly.
