This is too old to get support here. Even the most recent release,
1.0rc2, is not particularly supported anymore, and anything before it is
definitely not.

Also, the "-DFSG-free" on the version label indicates that this is a
packaged version made by a third party; as such, it would not be
supported here anyway, and questions about it should be directed to the
people who made the packages.

Please try with a more recent version - preferably the most recent
development version, obtained via SVN and compiled yourself - and see if
the problem still occurs.

Did you read the error messages? Particularly, did you read the last

If the problem still happens after you update to the latest development
version, follow those directions and a fix will probably be provided.
