I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here: eval will trap death, even when invoked from a __DIE__ handler:

% perl -wl local $SIG{__DIE__} = sub { print "in handler (@_)"; die "from handler"; }; eval { die "foo" }; print "eval returned (but knows the error was <$@>)"; __END__ in handler (foo at - line 5. ) eval returned (but knows the error was <from handler at - line 3. >) %

    Strange ...

    ... your snippet runs identically on my machine and I can't reproduce anymore what I saw (!?!)

    Most likely I was wrong about why the OP's program aborts.
