Yes, you're right. I was able to trigger that problem.

Calling $old_die_handler directly does seem to work great, thanks.

What's the issue if $old_die_handler uses goto instead of die? This is a 
worry about the inifinite loop again, or something else?
I was trying to identify the problem with this code but it seems to be 
working okay:

use strict;
use warnings;

sub _old_die2 {
  die "in old die2: $_[0]";

my $app = sub {
  # override global DIE handler
  $SIG{__DIE__} = sub { goto &_old_die2 };

  my $old_die_handler = $SIG{__DIE__};

  local $SIG{__DIE__} = sub {
    my $msg = shift;
    unshift @_, $msg . " lots of details about system state";

    die @_ unless $old_die_handler;


  eval { die "i'm not dead yet" };
  die "goodbye world!";
  return [ 200, [ 'Content-Type' => 'text/plain' ], [ 'Hello World' ] ];

I get:

The application raised the following error:

  in old die2: goodbye world! at /home/a/tmp/hello.psgi line 24.
 lots of details about system state at /home/a/tmp/hello.psgi line 5.
