Comment (by Goetz Pfeiffer):

 It seems that *.exe files cannot be loaded from the mvme2100 CPU anyway,
 *.ralf files do.

 So, in order to reproduce the bug you have to check out examples-v2
 (https://git.rtems.org/examples-v2), build it and load "both_hello.ralf".

 On the mvme2100 cpu this still gives an exception.

 The command
 hexdump both_hello.ralf | less
 shows that the file starts with ".ELF" in ASCII representation, so it is
 an probably an ELF file. This is probably not the format the CPU
 bootloader can load.

 I verified that for the "beatnik" board support, the file
 "both_hello.ralf" does not start with ".ELF", and there the hello world
 example works.
