/usr/X11R6/lib/libXmu.so.6 where itr si supposed to be. Everything
else si wrong and should removed. What I don't know is how your
installation became screwed like this. I will try to check the RPM in
And I have been using Indy RPMS for months given that Indy was the
only distrib supporting Banshees.

Classic in Unix. When you give wrong options it prints them. When I
don't have aclue about a program I invoke it with --help: either this
is a n option for printing args or it is wrong and the program prints
args. It works with 99 of 100 progs.
