I found several similar problems in my original test case, please see my
earlier mail from today where I included a completely rewritten test case
with buffered output and new periodic logic.

The case attached here seems to try to print the trace without first stopping
it. I don't think that will result in the desired output. My new test case
addresses that issue as well.

I'd appreciate any feedback, thanks.
