At the suggestion of moritz, I ran the script with strace, the relevant bits of which are as follows:
select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {180, 0}) = 1 (in [3], left {180, 0} +) read(3, "e_type\":\"all_birthday\",\"ancestor"..., 4096) = 4096 mremap(0xb7a16000, 3756032, 3760128, MREMAP_MAYMOVE) = 0xb7a16000 time(NULL) = 1270142654 select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {180, 0}) = 1 (in [3], left {180, 0} +) read(3, "us\":\"active\",\"last_modified\":\"20"..., 4096) = 4096 mremap(0xb7a16000, 3760128, 3764224, MREMAP_MAYMOVE) = 0xb7a16000 time(NULL) = 1270142654 select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {180, 0}) = 1 (in [3], left {180, 0} +) read(3, ",\"text\":\"RUSSELL Nee Viney Nigel"..., 4096) = 4096 mremap(0xb7a16000, 3764224, 3768320, MREMAP_MAYMOVE) = 0xb7a16000 time(NULL) = 1270142654 select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {180, 0}) = 1 (in [3], left {180, 0} +) read(3, "8\",\"featured\":0,\"sub_type\":\"memo"..., 836) = 836 time(NULL) = 1270142654 time(NULL) = 1270142654 mmap2(NULL, 3768320, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMO +US, -1, 0) = 0xb767e000 munmap(0xb6a62000, 4059136) = 0 mmap2(NULL, 3768320, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMO +US, -1, 0) = 0xb6e88000 munmap(0xb5d2a000, 4059136) = 0 mmap2(NULL, 3768320, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMO +US, -1, 0) = 0xb6af0000 munmap(0xb767e000, 3768320) = 0 munmap(0xb7a16000, 3768320) = 0 write(1, "\n", 1) = 1 write(1, " - objects 225001 .. 230000", 27) = 27 clone(child_stack=0, flags=CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID|CLONE_CHILD_SETTID +|SIGCHLD, child_tidptr=0xb7f7db78) = 14233 time(NULL) = 1270142654 rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0 rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {0xe5c500, [], 0}, 8) = 0 rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0 nanosleep({1, 0}, 0xbfb45ea4) = ?

Here is where the parent child makes the request:

select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout) time(NULL) = 1270142654 select(8, [3], [3], NULL, {180, 0}) = 1 (out [3], left {180, 0 +}) write(3, "GET /ia_object/_search?searchTyp"..., 246) = 246 time(NULL) = 1270142654 select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {180, 0}) = ?

At this stage, my code catches the select failed: no child processes error in an eval, issues a warning, then sleeps before retrying:

write(2, "\nSystem is busy - trying again\n", 31) = 31 time(NULL) = 1270142665 rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0 rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {0xe5c500, [], 0}, 8) = 0 rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0 nanosleep({3, 0}, 0xbfb45ea4) = ? ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK +(To be restarted)

I'm not sure what most of this means, but is the value of $! being set to "no child processes" by one of my waitpid calls, which is interfering with the code in LWP::Protocol::http? Would it help if I localised $! in my reaper sub?
