I've only vaugely been following this thread (no pun intended). It just 
occurred to me I may know what's going on. You're only seeing the 
degredation when exec'ing an external perl module correct?

We had a bug in our perl interpreter which caused it to start very 
slowly. I don't recall the exact cause and it's since been fixed in our 
distribution, but it's conceivable you're hitting the same issue. You 
might want to try googling about slow perl initialization and see if 
it's relevant to your issue.
