severn2 kernel on RH9 => ldd segfaults

While it is probably a stupid thing to do, I have installed the latest
kernel on a RH9 machine. A strange observation is that ldd sometimes
segfaults on some libs:

# echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield
# ldd /lib/ => /lib/i686/ (0x4005b000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40022000)
# ldd /lib/ 
/usr/bin/ldd: line 1:  6884 Segmentation fault      LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1 LD_WARN= LD_BIND_NOW= LD_LIBRARY_VERSION=$verify_out LD_VERBOSE= "$file"

At the beginning I thought this might have something to do with
exec-shield, but I turned it off as above and it still segfaults.

Do I need to upgrade my glibc, or is there a way to tame the kernel?
