// This testcase, when run with large number of threads
// under stace -f, may never finish because strace does not
// ensure any fairness in thread scheduling:
// it restarts threads as they stop. If daughter threads crowd out
// the "mother" and _they_ get continually restarted by strace,
// the end of spawning loop will never be reached.
// Also, it is a testcase which triggers the
// "strace: Exit of unknown pid 32457 seen"
// message when on testcase exit, strace sees deaths of newly-attached
// threads _before_ their first syscall stop.
