Ok, found the problem.
Upon loading some other application, I get the error from WINE:
Standard load address for a Win32 program (0x00400000) not available -
security-patched kernel ?
Trying to run IDA with a kernel without grsecurity indeed works.
Can anyone explain why the security patches block the 00400000 address
from being used?
