You could try using strace(1) on rpcemu to see what it tries to do with
the iyonix directory as you access it.

Start rpcemu as normal.  Get all the way up to the point where you can
see your Linux home directory containing iyonix.  Find rpcemu's process
ID, e.g.

    pidof rpcemu

Tell strace to attach to that process and trace file-related activities.

    strace -p $pid -e trace=file

Then open iyonix as before.  strace should print some lines.  They may
be helpful in diagnosis.  Ctrl-C will kill off strace else it'll print
lots more lines.  To capture the lines you can give `-o /tmp/st' as an
extra option.
