hmm it appearently is a kernel/ptrace issue as Marcus Meissner supposed.
I just tested it on x86 and it works fine, while on x86_64 it doesnt work.
I will dig a bit further if time permits.

Just out of curiosity, why does the server continue ptracing after "the work is done",
instead of just detaching?
