So nothing else? It looks like some function is being called over and
over again that "you can write more data to client", but the function
then does nothing.

It would be helpful to find out what the I/O function is that is being
called. For example:

b ioloop-epoll.c:208
p *io
p *io

What is the *io output? If it's client_output() or something else as
generic.. Use "step" to get into the function then then:

p *client
p *client.output_lock
p client.command_queue[0]
p client.command_queue[1]
p client.command_queue[2]
