I agree, it's definitely a problem with g-wrap.  As g-wrap is a guile
program (as well as wrapping functions for guile, it is written in
guile), it may help if you can provide us with some details of your
guile setup.

BTW, if all you want to do with gnucash is run it, rather than test
new features, stick to 1.4.2.  The 1.5.x series is a development
series - we use the linux kernel version numbering scheme.
