I've done similar experiments here and my program worked all right too.
So, I thought I've missed something that we had back in the days we had
a problem with dicod. But, then, you've tried everything we dicod and it
works nicely too.

But, anyway, we've been having problems with other programs. Basically
the issue seemed to be an old gcrypt version, right? So, we just need to
investigate now how we can make gsasl pull the right version
automatically. And I think that's why we have the symbols and the old
shlibs files. I think we must push that into gcrypt package. What do you
