Just a thought from reading the post. 

Could perl be treating the commas as argument separators and passing options 
such as:

-drive file=/vms/Network/DNS_Server_1/QEMU_064GB.qcow2,if=ide,index=0,media=disk


-drive file=/vms/Network/DNS_Server_1/QEMU_064GB.qcow2 if=ide index=0 media=disk

  (commas removed)

to qemu, which I would expect to generate unknown option errors.  Maybe the 
line, or command options, might need to be quoted in some fashion to insure qemu
receives the comma separated sub-options as a single string.
