Looks like it crashed before it even got to main.

But when I start gdb, it says:
warning: A handler for the OS ABI "GNU/Linux" is not built into this 
of GDB.  Attempting to continue with the default i386 settings.

I guess the Linux packages built for DFly 2.9 don't work with 2.11, or my 
kernel version is somewhere in the middle of a change to the Linux module.
