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. 

I have tested that patch already and it does not fix it with the current codebase.  I believe you need to get qemu 0.14.1 to use that patch for success.

I also don't have any time for this today, but it is on my "things of interest to do in spare time when wife allows it list"  Hopefully this weekend.
