We care about the I/O requests involving the text you're reformatting,
so I suggest running 'par' on some innocuous text and just looking at
the associated syscalls (assuming you can reproduce the problem).
Also, please try running the shell command 'fmt' on the same text, to
see if that can reproduce the problem. If it doesn't reproduce the
problem, see how fmt's system calls differ from par's. I mention 'fmt'
because it's similar to 'par' and I can easily run 'fmt' here.
