ok, so that's the fork . Avenues I can suggest.

 - The proot folks have their own (old) qemu-user rpms. Maybe there's
a fixup in there. Grab them from the same dir I published proot in.

 - Perhaps there is an NPTL bug (which I thought was stale, old info)
affecting fork(). If that's so, people claim that this patch
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/45206 fixes it. You'll want to
recompile qemu-user with this patch.

 - The "dieter / raspberry pi" threads mention a patched qemu-user. Try find it?

Can't work on this myself today :-/
