May be it's not the case but I once have got through a specific
linuxulator behaviour. I've been porting a propriate linux application
which was built for 2.4 kernel. The application used a FreeBSD library
instead of a linux one and exited with (something like) "OS ABI
invalid". The needed linux library was installed but not used...

When I examined ktrace/kdump, I noticed that the linux library
really was probed but apparently something prevented it from being
used and then a FreeBSD native library was chosen...

All my test configuration has defaults. But when I set
compat.linux.osrelease to 2.6.16 (even with linux_base-fc4)
the application was launched and functionning.

Well, the long story in short. Even if an application is compiled for
2.4 kernel it may want to use a more recent 2.4 features that we don't
have by default right now.
