These plugins all use the "Expat" xml parser library, so it seems likely
that there is a problem with the version of the perl expat library
distributed with the greenstone linux binaries and the installed version
of the expat library on your computer. Did you install greenstone from
the linux binary distribution, or compile it from source?
