I don't see anything strange in this strace.  Was there no output from ls?
It certainly thought it was outputting stuff.

I see a standard kill_pgrp, called by do_exit.  This causes everything in the
process group to be sent a SIGHUP if the process is the process group leader.

In this case, AFAICT, nothing was killed, which is what I would expect.

That's probably not what actually happened, though?
