Have you looked at the Debian Bug Tracking System? There are, in
fact, bugs against both gnucash (184683) and libgwrapguile1 (184681)
about this. (http://bugs.debian.org/) Poking around suggests that
the actual bug involves (use-modules (g-wrap gw-wct)) in
/usr/share/gnucash/guile-modules/gnucash/main.scm, which probably
causes Guile to try to load libgw-wct.so as a dynamically loaded
module; thus, libgw-wct.so doesn't show up as a direct dependency of
gnucash, but libgwrapguile1 doesn't provide the .so link since this
generally isn't done for real library packages.
