Hi, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the problem - even increasing sleep to 5 just keeps hanging

    You might have better luck trying to close or permanently redirect all filehandles. It may even be that you need to close ALL filehandles which you might have open. Maybe in the intervening time since the script was working, and not, you added some code elsewhere which opened some filehandles? See how to close all files
    or even
    open STDIN, "</dev/null"; open STDOUT, ">/dev/null"; open( STDERR, ">>/path/to/logfile");
