Fakeroot locks up for me (or rather it sits there waiting for a
process to exit).  It's seems to stop at some sort of ipc call.  

If I attach to the child process with "strace", it starts working.  If
I send SIGCONT to the child process, it starts working.

[pid  1840] stat("/user/dunham", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=13824, ...}) = 0
[pid  1840] ipc(0xd, 0xe8c7376, 0x380, 0, 0) = 1536
[pid  1840] ipc(0xd, 0xe8c7377, 0x380, 0, 0) = 1537
[pid  1840] getpid()                    = 1840
[pid  1840] ipc(0x2, 0xe8c7378, 0x1, 0x380, 0) = 768
[pid  1840] ipc(0x1, 0x300, 0x1, 0, 0xefffdc80) = -1 EINTR (Interrupted system call)
                                              ^pauses here
[pid  1840] --- SIGCONT (Continued) ---
