I just checked, and if it helps anybody any, the exact same thing 
happens if I use backticks instead of opening a filehandle to fire off 
rsync from within the Perl script.

I know I COULD write a Bourne wrapper and run THAT from Perl - I've been 
using Bourne scripts from day one to automate my rsync tasks - but 
that's a pretty ugly hack.  I'm hoping somebody's got a simpler answer 
for what's getting b0rk3d...
