The debug messages might indicate whether a problem 'elsewhere' is in fact 
triggered by something inside e2, but in this particular case, there's nothing 
obvious in the current messages, and no obvious way to decide where more 
messages might help.

I've experimented with a bunch of small changes, but sofar nothing has reliably 
improved things, except - possibly - compiling without optimisation.

I looked at those - nothing obvious to change.

BTW, another problem with the current code is a sporadic (and for me, _very_ 
rare) crash after changing out of the temp dir created by the unpack plugin. 
This one is similarly elusive. Again, the evidence suggests something going on 
outside of e2.
