Description of problem:
I tried to run file-roller under strace, but a child process died so it couldn't read the specified file. It opens the file fine when strace is not used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. strace -f file-roller foo.zip
Actual Results: file-roller popped up an error dialog box "An error occurred while opening the archive". strace output shows that a child process immediately segfaults after being cloned (see strace output, attached).
Expected Results: file-roller behaviour should be unchanged

Actually strace -f anything_that_forks seems to do it, and it appears to be a
kernel bug, see bug 156908
