The thing I am launching seems to be a script file. It eventually launches the executable, called AROSBootstrap. I am now running your command, but replacing "hostbridge" with AROSBootstrap. The command works, but the trace is so long and convoluted that it is impossible to decipher, since there are thousands of lines that go like this

I do know about symlinking and how Linux works and stuff. I am a bit of a noob at strace though.
