strace (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I am reading docker documentation and there are samples how to use strace command for example to strace the whoami there is a sample to be run from terminal:
strace -c -f -S name whoami

When I execute this command every time error appears:
"Segmentation fault (core dumped)"

I tried:
strace -c whoami
works fine

I tried:
strace -c -f whoami
also works fine.

strace -c -f -S name whoami
every time returns "segmentation fault".

It looks like "-S name" switch is the cause of the problem.
