revOpenDatabase on Linux - works in IDE, broken in standalone - how do I fix?

I've now also tested with ODBC, in Debian Lenny (previous test was on Xandros, 
to PostgreSQL), and got the same result: works in IDE, fails in standalone. 
Same error.

Has anyone else managed to solve this?  Please help!

Many thanks,

Ben
