THanks for that.

My initial suspicion would be that this is actually a concurrency bug
in the makefile, not in distcc.  Many Makefiles seem to have latent
bugs because they've never been built with so many CPUs.

Could you perhaps try to reproduce it with DISTCC_LOG and
DISTCC_VERBOSE set to capture the output and let me see what's
happening in there?
