I've experienced hangs when starting Inferno on Linux, but was unable to
reproduce this issue: after killing that emu with Ctrl-C and starting it
again everything works fine. Also this happens very rare - about once per
few months or so.
So, if you think you fixed this issue, I'll be happy to see this fix in
mainline inferno-os. Or at least separate patch for this fix attached in
inferno-os issue tracker.
