gettimeofday({1225273001, 762486}, NULL) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGINT, {SIG_DFL}, {SIG_IGN}, 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGQUIT, {SIG_DFL}, {SIG_IGN}, 8) = 0
write(2, "0.00", 40.00)                     = 4
write(2, "u", 1u)                        = 1
write(2, "s", 1s)                        = 1
write(2, "e", 1e)                        = 1
write(2, "r", 1r)                        = 1
write(2, " ", 1 )                        = 1
