I've just installed Amaya on my Debian Woody box using the deb at
http://www.w3.org/Amaya/Distribution/amaya_gtk-8.0-1_i386.deb
and I'm seeing the same problem (except the line numbers are different - 
220 & 394 now - full log below, also the result of the ldd check).

There don't seem to be any replies to Dan's message.  Can anybody 
suggest how to solve the problem, or where to look for more information? 
Dan, did you ever get it to work?

Thanks and regards
