It's messaged issued by perl (for some not-yet-investigated
reason). If you don't need embedded perl - just compile nginx
Am I right in the assumption that this happens on restart? If
yes, there were some reports that fixing init script to wait for
nginx to stop before starting a new copy (or at least adding a
sleep 1 between stop and start in restart function) helps. Or
better - you may use reload instead (since there are no real
reason to restart nginx, reload usually sufficient and doesn't
loose any single request).
