I suggest -ff, which will populate the files /tmp/foo.12343 by PID#
I can't see why scan is doing DNS, but what do I know.

If it's network related, we'll probably ask you to send tcdpump.
        sudo tcpdump -i any -n -p -w /tmp/network.pcap
if you are logged in by SSH, then please add "not port 22"
