That may be true about quirks on my machine but I figure a failure on 
yours is more important than a success on mine. The success on mine 
just gives you a clue to look at your system more closely. 

I had a similar problem with arts and libvorbis. After upgrading 
libvorbis, artsd wouldn't run until I force upgraded it but I haven't 
got anyone's attention yet :).
