that should not be a problem

well, crap. if the problem occurs only when not doing logging, then
this is going to be a bitch to investigate. (did you try just just '-l'
or just '-d' instead of '-l -d' ?)

if you can reproduce it consistently, file a bug report. however i
cannot make guarantees as to when it will be fixed, due to time
constraints.  I can assist you if you want to debug this issue
yourself, though.
