If a process was using ptrace() to trace a multi-threaded process, and that multi-threaded process dumped its core, the process performing the trace could hang in wait4(). This issue could be triggered by running "strace -f" on a multi-threaded process that was dumping its core, resulting in the strace command hanging.
