Note that we are talking about two things here.  There is the gnome
library (in /usr/lib), and the Glade Gnome Plugin (which lives under the
libglade directory).  The issue here is that libglade cannot load its
gnome plugin.  No, it should NOT be in /usr/lib -- but it should be able
to load itself.

You should file a bug with Ubuntu.
