[CentOS] BackupPC won't fork after CentOS 5.2 upgrade

For some time now i have been running BackupPC 3.1.0 on CentOS 5.1 
x86_64 however after upgrading to CentOS 5.2 BackupPC will not start.

"sudo /etc/init.d/backuppc start" return OK but there is no BackupPC 
processes.

This fails also.
# sudo -u backuppc /usr/bin/BackupPC -d
# echo $?
0

This succeeds, but of course does not fork.
# sudo -u backuppc /usr/bin/BackupPC

So for some reason after the CentOS 5.2 upgrade it will not fork into 
the background.

I have run the perl debugger over it and up until the fork everything is 
fine.

Nothing appears in the LOG.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
