Finding the object being DESTROY'ed
I have a DESTROY method I can't avoid keeping around, and in certain code paths in mod_perl I successfully make sure all instances are cleaned up before my final save, and all is well.

For another page, however, apparently, there is still a reference to it lying around after I undef the two copies I know about.

This is, naturally enough, someone else's design.

How can I figure out what has a reference to the object, when all I have, so far, is $self in DESTROY?

Oh, and I know it isn't in pnotes.

Maybe some of the circular reference finding tools like Devel::Leak,
Devel::Peek, or Devel::LeakTrace::Fast can help?
