I don't often use these, but now that I ran them for a test, I seem to
be having problems as well. However, I'm running current and for me
it's the other way around: Maple 9.5.1 works, Matlab 7.0.1 doesn't.

In my case I've nailed it down to a problem with ls. The following
shell script works with /bin/sh, but not with /usr/compat/linux/bin/sh.
In the latter case it errors out with:

ls: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/ ELF file
OS ABI invalid

---simple shell script---
#! /bin/sh
---end of simple shell script---
