Cute.  Does it affect anything other than /bin/rm?  Is /bin/rm sane
(not some random junk that's confusing the ELF loader)?  Is this an
SMP system (which might point to locking problems)?

If this seems consistent (other than the actual errno reported), the
quickest solution would seem to be to use DDB (or kernel GDB) to
follow the execution path from execve() until it goes off the rails.
