parameter "-f", one without.

The console output was:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Errors were encountered while processing:

I'm not used to strace, but to me it looks like line 1349 in the non-
fork trace marks the beginning of the endless loop.

** Attachment added: "strace with timestamps (no forks)"
