Thanks, and nice job finding this root cause and solution!  I'll fix it
and test as soon as I get back to Salomé development next week.
Unfortunately we need to wait for the package to get through the NEW
queue before it makes sense to upload a new version.

It's also worth asking: could a change like this let us drop the salome
dependency on libopencascade-visualization-dev?  As I recall, that
dependency was added to avoid a similar error while loading a
non-versioned plugin.
