Webkit actually never changed until now, but gtk+ has switched from 2.16 to 
2.20 (the day after r19572) and back to 2.16 (in r19641 on October 5th).

I don't have access to the build server for the moment, but I wonder if the 
nightly builds are still picking up the 2.20 gtk+ libraries.
Christian, did you remove the gnome directory from the build server after 
reverting the 2.20 patch ?

Alternatively the problem could also be locally on your machine if an update 
from one version to another didn't properly remove some old (or rather too 
new) libary. Did you uninstall GnuCash before installing the latest nightly 
build ?

That may solve the issue.
