Seems like it's relevant. Unfortunately, that doesn't tell us what
file is, only that file descriptor 3 that's in use. Before the failing
reads start, you should see `open("/some/path", FLAGS) = 3'. If you
need to save the log, use the strace option `-o file'.


P.S. Nice job using strace. I've been meaning to put it in the book
forever because it's simply the fastest way to start figuring out why
things are screwed up.
