We are compiling each application with Lazarus installations under each OS
10.4.11, on PPC and i386, and distribute these in a universal binary

I just received a new report this morning, and this time the problem happens
on G5 :-(

I suspect somehow some redistributed framework gets broken on certain Mac

I will try and guide these users to execute the application from command
line, and see if this returns a link error, or any clues ;-)

Regards and thanks for your time,
