I ran it like this (from a ssh shell):

  strace /usr/bin/maemo-summoner /usr/bin/osso-application-installer.launch

The .launch-file is the real binary, the one without is just a symlink
to maemo-invoker that tells a separate maemo-launcher process to load
and run the .launch (simple, eh?-). This is a gross hack (though it
does work ;) to speed up application startup time. Maemo-summoner is a
tool to do that directly so you can run strace and gdb for them
without recompiling to a "normal" binary.

If the socket read/open blocks, it won't refresh the UI either. It's
not a threaded application AFAICT.
