Daemonised program dying on OSX

I have a little perl program that runs in Daemon mode via Proc::Daemon 
that occasionally just dies on me. For the life of me I can't find any 
way of getting any information about why it is dying. Does anyone have 
any idea as to how I might debug this?

Getting it to restart is no problem, I can just have a cron run every 5 
minutes try and restart the process and as it's using Proc::PidFile so 
there wont be more than one. But the fact that it is dying is really 
bugging me and I would like to fix the problem rather than cover it up.

Oh yes, it's on OSX.
