Problem running Sugar on openSUSE 11.0

I recently upgraded my PC from openSUSE 10.2 to openSUSE 11.0. On my
previous installation I had used sugar-jhbuild to compile and run the
Sugar environment. It was not fully functional, but it worked OK for
what I needed it for. However, after upgrading my XO to the latest
Sugar I realized that I needed a better Sugar environment.
I upgraded openSUSE to 11.0, deleted my sugar-jhbuild directory and
started over. I kept failing because it was looking for libraries in
/opt/gnome/lib that I didn't have.
I looked on the SUSE page (http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Sugar_on_SUSE) to
see what advice I could get and found your install instructions for
zypper. I tried them out and they *seemed* to work just fine.
Unfortunately, when I tried logging in with a Sugar session it died
almost immediately. I tried running "sugar" from the command line and
this is what I got:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I had to compile a bunch of stuff from source to get sugar-jhbuild to
work on 10.2 so i did a "make uninstall" on everything sugar-related I
compiled. This had no effect at all on the messages I have attached.
I'm stumped here and hope you can give me some insight on what is
happening and how I might go about fixing it.
