BTW, Ian, perhaps it's not that urgent, but how cumbersome would it be
to setup a few ad-hoc flights, like you did here:


when also doing what Anthony was doing for stracing QEMU, as he
described in here:


I'm not sure what we could find, nor whether we should expect the strace
to be similar to Anthony's. Perhaps not, as the system here is idle, and
perhaps something would highlight or hint at where to look in this
specific case... Or maybe none of the above, but it may be worth a try.

If there is anything I can do for helping setting this up, just let me
know (here or on IRC).
