Of course you are right. Somehow I messed up b.sh
(OK, this file is so long and complicated, so no wonder :)
Anyway my bad, sorry.

In the b.sh interpreter should be ./a.sh

Another attempt to provide correct data:

[valery@localhost ~]$ cat a.sh
#!/bin/sh
echo "It's a.sh"
[valery@localhost ~]$ cat b.sh
#! ./a.sh
echo "It's b.sh"
[valery@localhost ~]$
[valery@localhost ~]$ strace -f -e execve setarch i386 ./b.sh
execve("/usr/bin/setarch", ["setarch", "i386", "./b.sh"], [/* 40 vars */]) = 0
execve("./b.sh", ["./b.sh"], [/* 40 vars */]) = 0
It's a.sh
[valery@localhost ~]$

My problem is not incorrect output, but successful execve, when script's interpreter is interpreter itself.

Somewhere between Fedora 8 and Fedora 12 execve's behaviour changed.

@Andrew:
When b.sh has interpreter ./b.sh I got expected ENOEXEC, same as you.
