This means that something in the chain was linked to Sun's version
of libXext.so.0 and libz.so.1

It could be, I've been searching the net and it seems that some dists 
(Macports for instance) have had some problems with zlib 1.2.4, but the 
developers of zlib argues that the problem lies with the software 
calling zlib and that they should be altered, not zlib.
But that has usually also been related to build errors not only runtime 

A recompile of the programs have in many cases solved the problem.
Maybe Maciej can rebuild and put in /testing so you can check if it 
solves the problem.
