Default Segfault with alliance on liveDVD


We have as part of FEL a package (alliance), which works well on Rawhide, but
crashes (segfault) on our liveDVD. (built from rawhide also.)

There must be a required file or something like that missing, but for now we
don't know which one.

We are looking for pointers on how to resolve that kind of issue. Have been
explored for now: valgrind[1] and strace[2][3] on rawhide and that liveDVD.

Valgrind complains about a "source and destination overlap" happening in
libXm.so.2.0.1 before the crash.

Strace shows some differences before the load (or crash) of the program, but
I’ve not been able to spot something interesting enough in it.

Any idea on how to fix that ?

Tested version: last build of alliance (.22) on i386.
graal, the executable used here is part of the alliance package.

List of installed packages on Rawhide (where graal works):
List of the install packages on the livedvd (where graal segfaults)
