Yep, I tracked it down with strace and the VM log. It almost looks
like a libc function may have been changed. It dies on a select
following two failed reads. The select returns saying data left in
filehandle #8, but the following read(8,0x81cb36c,24) returns EAGAIN.

The final line is:

select(9, [6 7 8], [], NULL, {1, 0}VMware PANIC: (ide0:0)

The code forks not much before this point and its not immediately
obvious where the program flow is.
