    If you use eval, there has to be a local $@ somewhere nearby. There is no good rule of thumb for where exactly because that depends on the structure of your code. But you have to make sure $@ is restored at some point before execution returns from the scope you are controlling. That is the key: do not pass control back to your caller without fixing $@ if you used eval.
