hmm, just to test copy the /boot/config-2.2.17 file to
/usr/src/linux/.config (or wherever you put the kernel
source) and run

make dep ; make clean ; make bzImage

and repeat that a few times ..see if it segfaults again
ive never had menuconfig segfault on a stable kernel
maybe something else is at work here ..can't imagine
what it is though.

does it crash at the same point? also what is your
terminal emulation? are you on the console or
are you doing this through some sort of telnet/ssh
or xterm or something
