Yes, I believe that you are being bitten by the same DLL/fork() problem
that affects Python too.  Please try the following:

    http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin/2001-12/msg00894.html

and report back to the list.  Of course, you need to rebase the Perl
DLLs instead of (or in addition to) the Python ones.  I would be very
interested to see if my rebase solution solves your problem too.

Thanks,
Jason
