Hmm very interesting.

Yes i did, i run Debian unstable/sid so i'm upgraded all the time :-),
but I also maintain parallel installs of and the
latest RC, and with common shared libraries they DO NOT behave the

being called in a different manor between those versions, but it
doesn't pinpoint where the bug is (the viewer or the library)
