   It was when I tried to invoke the installed gnucash-2.6.16 that I learned
it depends on an earlier library version that was replaced during the
distribution upgrade. Since the library version is hard-coded I have no
choice but to migrate to 2.6.17.

   I'll read the documents you provided. I'm not sure that vulnerabilities in
wekitgtk2 would affect gnucash since I use it only when needed; it's not
open constantly. But, I'll read about it.

   In the meantime I still need to resolve the static vs shared library

Many thanks,
