The line in question is:

@ARGV = @{ $options->{argv} };

So you should make sure your server.pl has something like this:

my @argv = @ARGV;

MyApp->run( $port, $host, {
    argv => \@argv,
} );

I suppose it should also be patched to @{ $options->{argv} || [] } though.  If you don't save argv like this, auto-restart will not relaunch the server correctly.
