>I've uploaded a patched version which collects more information at [1], perhaps you download that, put it in /usr/bin and try that strace command again. (You may need to chmod +x it after downloading)

I assume the patched version was this strace.exe.  I downloaded it and ran it in the /usr/bin after renaming the original strace.exe.  This is what showed up on the terminal window.  Attached is log_v2.

strace -o log_v2 XWin
