I do not see either of these symptoms, and nobody else has reported
them.

# make -f $KBUILD_SRCTREE_000/Makefile-2.5 xconfig
Using ARCH='i386' AS='as' LD='ld' CC='/usr/bin/gcc' CPP='/usr/bin/gcc -E' AR='ar' HOSTAS='as' HOSTLD='gcc' HOSTCC='gcc' HOSTAR='ar'
Generating global Makefile
phase 1 (find all inputs)
(cd /build/kaos/object-2.5.14/.tmp_config/links/ && /build/kaos/object-2.5.14/scripts/tkparse < config.in-2.5) >> /build/kaos/object-2.5.14/scripts/kconfig.tk

xconfig menu displays, clicking save and exit ends xconfig and drops
back to the command prompt, it does not do anything else.

# make -f $KBUILD_SRCTREE_000/Makefile-2.5 oldconfig
Using ARCH='i386' AS='as' LD='ld' CC='/usr/bin/gcc' CPP='/usr/bin/gcc -E' AR='ar' HOSTAS='as' HOSTLD='gcc' HOSTCC='gcc' HOSTAR='ar'

#
# Using defaults found in .config

* Code maturity level options
*
Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers (CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL) [N/y/?]
*
* General setup
*
Networking support (CONFIG_NET) [N/y/?]
System V IPC (CONFIG_SYSVIPC) [N/y/?]
BSD Process Accounting (CONFIG_BSD_PROCESS_ACCT) [N/y/?]
Sysctl support (CONFIG_SYSCTL) [N/y/?]

* Loadable module support

Enable loadable module support (CONFIG_MODULES) [Y/n/?]
Set version information on all module symbols (CONFIG_MODVERSIONS) [N/y/?]
Kernel module loader (CONFIG_KMOD) [N/y/?] (NEW)

Works for me.
