Ah, now we're getting somewhere. I'll need a gdb backtrace rather than
strace for that (which means you'll need to build Paludis with -ggdb3 in
CXXFLAGS, and with build_options set appropriately, if you haven't

The easiest way to get a backtrace is probably to do:

    $ cave uninstall blah --perform-program 'gdb --args cave perform' -x
    (gdb) run
    (gdb) thread apply all bt

since it sounds like it's the perform process that's barfing rather
than the main program.
