   Which is why I suggested to specify +relay,+tid as the standard way
to generate traces.
   But if you've already determined that the application you are
debugging has only a single thread, or that there is a single active
thread in the particular call sequence that is causing problems, then
you can drop the +tid in the following traces.
   Also, this is why I think it's nice to have the tid on each trace. If
not using +relay there is no indication of which thread is issuing the
