make menuconfig is pretty broken. Sometimes, "make oldconfig" after "make
menuconfig" manages to correct the .config. Sometimes, at least with
2.0.34 and 2.1.108, menuconfig even worked for me as-is. YMMV.
The currently advertised workaround is to "make config" once, then vi
.config, remove any lines you want to change and "make oldconfig" to
correct them. Awkward, but better than having to "make config" and keep
hitting enter until you just reach the right spot.
btw, is anyone aware of the *cause* of the make menuconfig problem?

Shared memory works well with Linus' 2.0.34 and the Alpha-patches from
gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/DEC/Linux-Alpha/Kernels/, and with pristine
Shared memory doesn't work with Alan's pre-2.0.35, not even with his
