    The message doesn't accur.
    Sorry that I don't know how to create such a traceback.

    This seems to be the main reason.
    I should have taken this into account because this is exactly the same
    effect that I had with my own software.

    The true reason seems to be the version numbering system of the linux
    shared libraries (major and minor numbers) which leads to these problems:
    You can easily mix several different libraries without getting warned
    about this. (greetings from MS-Win*)

    This works very well in my situation, thank you for the hint. On the other
    hand programmers should be thankfull that such resource eating software
    like netscape exists to get their own software debugged.

    Thank you all for your suggestions,
