There is quite possibly something wrong with your libraries. Did you build this yourself, or is it Christian's backport for Debian stable, or is it a regular Debian build? What happens if you upgrade to Christian's (from CRAN and its mirrors) or my (Debian mirrors) build of the current version 2.3.1 ?
