But me here as "root" and as a normal user.
Using kernel-2.2.22-6.2.2 with openwall patch and libsafe-1.3
Tested on 2 systems.

BTW: cat and less are ok.

strace:

stat("/proc/misc", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0444, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
open("/proc/misc", O_RDONLY)            = 3
read(3, "134 apm\n135 rtc\n", 2)        = 16
read(3, "", 4294967282)                 = 0
fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0444, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
old_mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1,
0) = 0x24a000
_llseek(3, 0, [0], SEEK_SET)            = 0
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

ltrace:

__xstat(3, "/proc/misc", 0xbffff9f0)              = 0
fopen("/proc/misc", "r")                          = 0x08052570
fread(0xbffff9d6, 2, 1, 0x08052570)               = 8
fseek(0x08052570, 0, 0, 0x08052570, 0xbffffc0c)   = 0
