Yea, that's it.  After your note, I looked in my libmap.conf, and found 
some old mappings for some plugins pointing to  So 
mozilla and firefox were loading the (checked using 
ldd), but the plugins were using so.1, so I changed my libmap and voila, 
they work.

Thanks for the hint - I looked at that file probably 5 times, but 
sometimes you need a nudge to see the obvious.. :)

I'm sure someone else will have the same problem, so hopefully they 
google for the error and find this and fix it without another email. :)

Thanks again!
