i586 + gnueabi. Last I remember, gnueabi was an ARM thing. ?!
Although I am not an expert, maybe it's ok.

Puzzling. Can you try to diagnose it further?
Instead of inserting daemon()'s body into fuse_daemonize(),
can you add an exact copy of uclibc's

int my_daemon( int nochdir, int noclose )

above it and then call it instead of daemon()?
Does this work?

Further steps depend on the outcome of this one.
