Now that I read this, I think what may have happened is that I 
downloaded the official blender binary, and compiled the Yafray plugin. 
Since I'm using a very recent (release) version of gcc, this could very 
well be an ABI problem. If I download the Blender source and compile 
that, I'm thinking it should work. I usually compile from CVS, but I 
thought it might be faster just to do the binary when 1.34 was released.

Thanks for your response.
