It's the same thread. but here's what it says the last thing it did was..

(gdb) print shm->previous_syscallno[27]
$1 = 288

accept4.

Just to verify I'm looking at the right array member..

(gdb) print shm->pids[27]
$2 = 10818

Oh, hmm. Wait, I'm an idiot.
I only update ->previous when we come back from the syscall.
It's _still_ doing this syscall.

(gdb) print shm->syscallno[27]
$4 = 202

I was distracted by seeing all the other threads exiting, so I was only looking at
what this one had already done.

ok, mystery solved. derp.

Dave
