I'm sorry, that's my fault, I used strace output from a previous hang
as an example, not realizing it would cause confusion. For the record,
this is the current output:

strace: Process 9780 attached
futex(0x7f5fb44e0884, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 2147483664, NULL

Disregard my other reply about the --debug option, I will point the
althttpd devs at this thread and hopefully they can review.

Thanks a lot for the help.
