Oh - I completely missed that.

The title in the question likely stems from a erroneous use of $! in the die message.

As an explanation to the OP, please read perlvar about $!. It rightly says there:

Many system or library calls set errno if they fail, to indicate the cause of failure.

Using $! in situations that are not immediately after a related system call is usually wrong.
