Just out of curiosity: Is this something I can fix myself, or is it a 
distro thing, or even a Rational thing? (I suspect the first, but...)

I made a script setting the variable, running the rose startup script 
and finally removing the variable again. I guess any program started 
while Rose is running would also be using the older libraries, but that 
is OK, or isn't it..?

I obviously need to 'de-narrow' my searches...

Thanks again for the help!
