Would this be fixed by the changes you made?

Hmm, that sounds wierd. The modules from libxfcegui4/xfce4-modules 
(whenceforth called 'the modules') are loaded and accessed using 
g_module_open & g_module_symbol. But what you are saying above implies 
that you also access symbols in the modules outside of the g_module 
framework, eg. as if you had linked against those libraries. No offense, 
but if that is the case, it is really bad design, and we should fix that 

You should not/cannot treat a library as a module *and* as a regular 
shared library at the same time. Use one or the other, but not both.

Do you have any idea *which* symbols from the modules are used by xffm 
without retrieving their address using g_module_symbol?
