Does truss have the ability to follow child processes? It's been
awhile, but I believe strace has this capability via -ff and -o. You'll
know your man page better than me of course, but I was able to find this
from a few years ago in my Bash history:
$ strace -ffo /tmp/$DEVNAME $DEVBIN
Which I believe created a bunch of files in strace output files in /tmp.
In other words, LO forks itself a number of times, which is why when you
run it from the command line without backgrounding it, it returns
control to the shell almost immediately.
