I don't have any other GnuCash data file.

I tried what you suggested. The only difference between using the main
data file (ken09.gnc) and the .xac files it that the former crashes and
returns a segmentation fault as soon as it opens. The .xac files do not
crash and report a segmentation fault until I try to open an account.
However, I did post to the Debian user list about the possibility of a
Debian Lenny upgrade breaking GnuCash 2.2.6-2, and received confirmation
that such was indeed the case. I was given instructions how to compile
GnuCash 2.2.9 as a Debian package which deals with the package
incompatibility I raised in my third post to this thread. I will do the
compilation later today or tomorrow and report the results.
Thanks for you help so far.
