Hmmm... There must be some other cause mixed in as well. I have

CONFIG_BINFMT_AOUT=y
CONFIG_BINFMT_ELF=y
CONFIG_KERNEL_ELF=y

and I don't have any problems with any binaries.

My system is a mixed ELF/a.out system though I'm slowly replacing
a.out binaries with ELF binaries. I expect that by mid-1998, I'll be
rid of a.out and can blow away the libraries. 1/2 ;-)
