I have lots of patches to strace at work to make it autogenerate most of its 
tables and support amd64 (including i386 on amd64) as well as making it 
reliably work in the fork-a-new-process case.  I just don't have time to work 
on getting them into the port.  I think you are running into the latter issue 
and I largely fixed it by using the same strategy in strace that truss now 
uses for the fork-a-new-process case.
