It works for me, I think:

z:/home/akpm> uname -a
Linux z 2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Nov 7 21:11:14 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
z:/home/akpm> cat b.sh
#! ./b.sh
echo "It's b.sh"
z:/home/akpm> strace -f -e execve setarch i386 ./b.sh
execve("/usr/bin/setarch", ["setarch", "i386", "./b.sh"], [/* 60 vars */]) = 0
execve("./b.sh", ["./b.sh"], [/* 60 vars */]) = -1 ENOEXEC (Exec format error)
execve("/bin/sh", ["/bin/sh", "./b.sh"], [/* 60 vars */]) = 0
It's b.sh


Did I do something wrong? If not, I wonder what's different.
