Well, there's your problem. Your kill() is killing the shell (which at that
time is probably dead already anyway) but not the children of the shell.

You need a way to identify/kill  the grandchildren of the perl process,
maybe by killing the process tree of the shell or have the shell return the
ID of it's own children or something like that.
