This is normal: dosemu uses some attribute((constructor)) functions
that get called before main. The order isn't known (for newer GCCs you
can set priorities but they are not used). Somehow the RPMFusion build
ended up with an order that triggered the bug (that has, in principle
been present in dosemu for many years), a linked-list where an element
referenced itself, and so walking it caused the hang.
