No, neither do I, it's very strange !  It failed  in the same way on
Three different processor types (Intel Celeron, AMD 64, VIA C3).

I don't know.   The lack of any debugging output in syslog after the
chroot is also a bit of a mystery to me.

No.  The problem I had was with Yast (SuSE's set up tool) trying to
start the avahi-daemon via /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon.  That was the case
that I was having trouble with and I'mnot sure if I could have used
strace in that situation.
