I see that you have moved on to other packages, but just thought that 
I'd mention that I got this error executing a Perl system call using the 
development server because Catalyst::Engine::HTTP contains:
local $SIG{CHLD} = 'IGNORE';

Commenting this line out makes the error go away. I have no idea if 
there are other downstream issues. But the non-development servers don't 
do this, so you won't get the error there.
