[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#496125: libxml2 Gnome problem on 64bit only? + theme

I updated the kernel at the same time to 2.6.18.dfsg.1-22etch2, but I'm
guessing that's not it.

I'm running an AMD Phenom 9500(it's quad core), but I'm running all
32-bit, including a k7 kernel.

In regard to mike's question, the theme is Gorilla.
