I am absolutely seeing it outside of strace. It is showing up as an errno
to the select call:

if (select(0, (fd_set *)0, (fd_set *)0, (fd_set *)0, &t) != 0) {
if (errno != EINTR) {
return -1;

This code is seeing errno=514.

The production system is running CentOS 4.4, 2.6.9 kernel. However, it
looks to be the same issue all the way up to, and google shows
reports of it on 2.6.17.
