Weird problem with non-root user

I am using sudo 1.6.3p5 on a Red Hat 6.1 system to allow one specific user
to run scripts in another non-root users directory.
The particular command is a perl script that spawns multiple copies of
itself and does various networking tasks as a daemon.
If I use,
[user1 at host]% sudo -u user2 ~user2/script.pl
the script seems to start OK but does not spawn any children. It also does
not write to a log file that exists in ~user2. For all practical purposes,
it is as if the command failed.
The command works as expected when I login as user2 and run the command
[user2 at host]% ./script.pl
I did not change any options during the configure and make stage.
Any hints on how to get sudo to do what I want?
