I said no success so far. There are more than 20 modules and there is no 
description about what the good order should be. I had to keep trying...

Maybe you are right. But I would think that a missing symbol problem 
should throw an error message telling "missing symbol" instead of making 
a segfault.

We had the same problem on our previous server. I'm going to install 
another box today and test it. If the problem comes out again, I'm going 
to write a PR.

Thank you!
