Stopping it requires a kill -9. This seems to happen only when a request is received. The server does not send a response.

  I don’t see that in my tests.  The debug output you posted also doesn’t show it receiving a packet.  So it’s hard to tell what’s going on.

  It should run the perl module if it receives a request.

  It looks like the binary is broken.  There’s no configuration option which says “misbehave horribly”.
