I think the parser could be improved.  in this case, it seems to be 
choking on lines like:
23:34:13.502857 read(7, 0xbfffc670, 32) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)

on 310, junk="unavailable" - the code should handle -1 specially,
since it shouldn't be accumulated to $ReadBytesTotal.

I guess the code isn't intended to profile >409105-line traces on a laptop ;) 
it's a WIP, and stores a lot of stuff that it doesn't currently use, and
could probably be stored more compactly...
