Well, instead please find appended a test program that allows me to trigger
the issue.

To reproduce it do:

$ gcc -o break_scheduler break_scheduler.c
$ su -
[...]
# chown root.root $PATH_TO_BINARY/break_scheduler
# chmod u+s $PATH_TO_BINARY/break_scheduler
^D
$ ./break_scheduler

It behaves normally if run directly by root and it also behaves normally if
the execv() at the end is removed.

Hope that helps to understand what the problem is.

Thanks,
Rafael
