Actually, I double-checked our code, and we actually wait on the "File:"
message printed to stdout, which is even later, just before repeated calls to
select() to wait for packets.

So somehow, packets are being lost and not captured on Ubuntu 14.04 for a
while. Adding a sleep(2) after seeing the "File:" message ensures all packets
are captured and not lost. Hopefully you've got some regression testing tools
to confirm this easily.
