parenttests: add some tracing tests (diff)
libsandbox: force lock sanity across forks

Make sure that threads grabbing the sandbox lock don't screw up threads that do a fork and then exec.

erealpath() might deref symlinks when working with unreadable paths as non-root
even when working on funcs that do not deref funcs themselves ... this isnt a
real big issue though
+threaded apps conflict with shared state:

+ - sandbox_on
+ - trace_pid
+ - etc...
