sugar-jhbuild: exists, why can't hulahop find it?

I have been using sugar-jhbuild on my openSUSE 10.2 box for several 
months now, and last week I deleted it and did a complete rebuild of 
it.  One problem I have had from the beginning and still have is that 
when I try to run the Browse activity I get a message saying that 
hulahop fails when trying to load, claiming it is not found.

Marco has been helping me try different things to fix this, but the 
problem won't go away.  Nobody else seems to be having a problem with 
Browse under sugar-jhbuild, so I figure it must be something I'm doing 

This weekend I discovered that the library that is supposed to be 
missing is in fact in the directory


I understood that sugare-jhbuild looks within its own lib directory for 
libraries before looking into the system lib directories.  I can't 
understand why it says it can't find this library that is clearly 
present, and if the problem is one specific to SUSE or not.  Everything 
else in sugar-jhbuild seems to be working.

If anyone has ideas on how I could fix this I'd appreciate hearing them.
