Can you provide an strace (with -f) showing the hang? It's probably
not related to this since fork does not seem to be involved. Depending
on how you're using Go, it may just be Go bypassing libc then trying
to use libc functions, which at least used to be a big problem; I
don't know if it's fixed nowadays or not.
