Ok, actually the system call is run under Acme::Spork. Could it be the cause?
Easiest, securest way to find if Acme::Spork (never heard of it) is the cause: take it out of the equation and test it!

Just write:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $uemail = ''; system("perl -email \"$uemail\"") or die "Well, probably NOT + a spork problem";

or better yet, comment the spork line of your code and do a simple system call as above. Either way will tell you if this module is or is not the cause of your problem.

<UPDATE> My apologies to HuckinFappy. I ended up answering the same thing...</UPDATE>

Just my two cents.
