Has anyone been able to run Mathematica under ptrace sandbox?

I need this for corporate security reasons, and I'm able to get another system working with it, but not Mathematica.

Here's an example. It's supposed to generate opacity 0.5 plot, with all calls ptraced, but instead it freezes.
strace -f  myscript.m 0.5

#!/usr/local/bin/MathematicaScript -script
where myscript.m is
var = First@ToExpression[Rest[$ScriptCommandLine]];
img=Plot3D[Im[ArcSin[(x + I y)^4]], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Mesh -> None,PlotStyle -> Directive[Yellow, Specularity[White, 20], Opacity[var]],ExclusionsStyle -> {None, Red}];
