0.5.3 is ancient, ltrace really ought to be rebased to 0.7 (where this
works per my testing).  One thing worth checking would be whether ltrace
sees /etc/ltrace.conf (stracing ltrace is a way to see whether
/etc/ltrace.conf is opened successfully).  If not, then ltrace doesn't
see the syscall prototypes, and won't know which parameters are strings.

I also see this is broken on master, probably due to my prototype
library work.  Clearly we don't have tests for this.  I'll have to fix
this before 0.8.
