Sorry for OT question, but I am just fighting with 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=471180 and it seems 
to be similar case. Reporter claims that making a symlink from 
libpsppire.so.0.0 to libpsppire.so makes *THE MAIN PROGRAM* not 
crashing. Does it make any sense to anybody? Is the program 
broken, or did I screw up something in the process of building 

I thought that .so files are only for development, not for using 
the program itself?

(and now I cannot reproduce it on my computer)

Thanks in advance for any response,
