If you want to analyze the strace yourself and offer comment, then
please do so.  Sending strace snippets is normally useless.  99% of the
time, people send the equivalent of a photo of an accident scene with
the thought that the picture will show why the accident occurred, i.e.,
the strace snippet is worthless.  I gave up trying to inspect
unsolicited strace output a long time ago.
