core-dumps and shared-libs

I noticed the other day that core-dumps and shared-libs didn't work.
Core dumps from static linked executables worked like a charm.
My system is 100% ELF (1.3.30, libc5.2.9, gdb-4.14elf,
binutils-2.5.2l.20 etc).
Have anyone else experienced this problem ? I've tried it on
different configurations with kernels from 1.3.21 to 1.3.30,
all running ELF though.. and none of them worked.
Running gdb on a core-dump from a dynamic linked program just
gives me "garbage". I've messend around, replacing things one by
ones, but have been unable to track down the problem.
(The problem might be gdb though.)
