I tried this and some plain ldd but could not find any guilty file.

Some other results:
- MIDI playback starts, but there is no sound because SF2 files are not
- the PNG snapshot is corrupt (only 0x5A or 0xA5)
- switching on motion detection seems to freeze the video

The rest seems to work fine (DVD and DVB-T not tested yet).
