We used to have such bugs recently so i'm quite sure what you see is real.

The above test is almost the same what i did before sending you the pull request, so
it's not occuring all the time and on all boxes.

The distro version on that box you are using would be helpful, plus the build output
you get when you build 'tools/perf'. (I.e. which libraries are there. If it comes up
empty with no complaints you have all the devel libraries.)

We'll try to reproduce it locally before asking more debug data from you,'s can be pretty large to send via email :)
