I don't know about the other problems you mentioned, but this one sounds
similar to one I had. Pavel Machek (I think) pointed out that the dynamic
linker is now required to have the executable bit set for ordinary users
to be able to use it. Doing something like "chmod +x /lib/ld-*.so*" would
make sure it's set.
