  Yes, xastir v1.9.0

  I have a 'map.gif' and a 'map.png'  gwenview shows something like a 
tigermap in map.gif, and nothing but a grey checkerboard in map.png.
The timestamps are only ten minutes ago.  The machine has been up and 
stable for a month, and xastir has been running the whole time, but the 
maps just disappeared this morning sometime...
   Thinking maybe xastir had stepped upon its own sensitive parts, I shut 
down and attempted to restart xastir, but this is all I got:

xastir: error while loading shared libraries: libgdal.so.1: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory
