[Debtags-devel] Converting to {debtags,tagcoll} 1.0 TagDB::outputSystem

I was finally able to get packagesearch compile with the new
libdebtags/libtagcoll versions (thanks for the quick bugfix).
Unfortunately the program crashes on startup with the following
        #0  0x40bc683b in raise () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6
        #1  0x40bc7fa2 in abort () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6

        #20 0x40cd3fe4 in dlopen () from /lib/tls/libdl.so.2
Where the call causing the exception is Debtags::Environment::init(false, false);

Some words towards the circumstances. As you can see the function is
called in the process of initilalizing a dynamic library (i.e. in
__attribute__ ((constructor)) void init()). This is because the debtags
part for packagesearch is provided by a dynamically loaded plugin.
I don't know if this is significant, but the both the debtags plugin and
the main application are linked against lib{tagcoll,debtags}1. In the
former versions, I had only to link the main application, because I
linked against dynamic libraries. With the static ones this leaded to
unresolved external symbols. Might it be possible that linking against
lib{tagcoll,debtags}1 twice brings me into trouble?

Any help would be appreciated.
