That strace doesn't indicate "diff" doing anything wrong.  It opens
507 pairs of files and compares them: the transcript stops as it is
comparing the 507th pair.  I don't see any evidence of trouble.
"diff" doesn't find any differences, so it doesn't report anything.

You can use "diff -r -s" if you want "diff" to chatter as it works.
