Ooops, sorry, the real culprit was libglib, and it was because the -dev
version installed was newer than the library, so libglib.so was a dangling
symlink and libglib was linked in statically.

Morale: -dev packages should depend on the exact same version as the
corresponding libraries. Same bug exists in the gdk-imlib-dev package.

Sorry for the false alarm.


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
