After trying some different combos of keywords in Google, I found that it's a
known thing that IPC::Open[23] don't work under Apache/mod_perl. I adapted the
code to use IPC::Run (which alas added itself and one other CPAN module to our
list of dependencies), and it is now working. I imagine that you are right
about the cause, but the people behind the MP2 API would have to judge as to
whether that's a bug or a feature.
