No FUD unfortunately.  I found a copy of an slib 3a3 deb in my apt cache and 
installed it in place of 3a4.  With that, I was able to launch SVN gnucash 
without a problem.

I'm not advising that debian revert 3a4, but there is definitely a regression 
of some sort, either in slib or in the way that gnucash uses it.  I don't 
understand the interaction enough to file a cogent bug, though.
