I'm running openSUSE Leap 42.1 here and finding that Livecode 8 will not 
launch. The installer worked properly. Launching LiveCode displays the 
splashscreen followed either by a rapid crash (IDE itself never 
displays) or a permanent hang at the splashscreen. Running it from the 
command line results in this:

"Use of deprecated SAXv1 function setDocumentLocator
*** Error in 
free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x0000000003d3b820 ***" at the top of 
the full backtrace.

I had been running openSUSE 13.2 until recently and hadn't had this kind 
of difficulty with the dps and the RC of version 8. Under Leap, however, 
I get this same undesired behavior with the  v8 RC. LC versions 6 and 7 
work fine.

Deleting prefs and licenses has no effect.

Any thoughts on what I might be able to install to correct this? (Or, 
what LiveCode might be expecting to find which may or may not be 
available for installation in my distro...)
