run-webkit-tests --quiet hangs

My perl-fu is not strong. :(

I talked this out with "buu" in #perl, and this was the best we came up with.

I'm going to check this in w/o review to fix the regression that --quiet now hangs.  (Alternatively I could roll out my other patch which caused it to hang.)

If anyone has suggestions as to how I should improve this code, I'm happy to change it further.

This code is specifically trying to avoid turning the args array back into a string.  Perl doesn't seem to have an elegant way to deal with an args array *and* route stderr to /dev/null.  Another way I could handle this would be to override the parent's stdout/stderr before running the normal "system" call.  But that's also pretty nasty (although slightly less code).
