Bug#434522: gnome-terminal won't start

Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 2.18.1-1
Severity: normal

I added a few patches to my lenny box and gnome-terminal started failing with the following error message:

$ gnome-terminal
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-runtime.c: 78: _dl_fixup: Assertion `((reloc->r_info) & 0xff) == 7' failed!

The window tries to open up and then closes and gives the error.  Other gnome applications started failing also.  gdm no longer 
starts.  apt-get says gdm is installed but there is no gdm in /usr/sbin.
