funny signal messages when tracing any app

i imagine this has to do with the probing of new ptrace features, but it still 
seems wrong for the first two lines to be signal stuff when tracing any program:
$ ./strace -eexecve /bin/true 
--- stopped by SIGSTOP ---
--- SIGCONT {si_signo=SIGCONT, si_code=SI_USER, si_pid=10908, si_uid=8282} ---
execve("/bin/true", ["/bin/true"], [/* 69 vars */]) = 0
+++ exited with 0 +++
