It's a Catalyst issue.

--background is using MooseX::Daemonize, which closes all open file handles when backgrounding.

close_after_write works around this by re-opening the file for each write, however that's not amazing (as you do many more syscalls than necessary).

I have just pushed a fix for this into master - any chance you could try it out and confirm that the issue is fixed for you?
