Dmitry (I think) already applied this patch).

I am committing the following addition to manpage:

    In the simplest case strace runs the specified command until it  exits.
    It  intercepts  and records the system calls which are called by a pro-
    cess and the signals which are received by a process.  The name of each
    system call, its arguments and its return value are printed on standard
    error or to the file specified with the -o option. When straced program
    exits, strace makes exit status available to strace's parent process.


Yell if you want it phrased differently.
