Switch kernels on the same system determines if the app will run or
not. No other library changes.
is there a way that you can strace it or something to give us
something to go on other than "an application doesn't work" ?

Strace for fsavd with kernel 2.6.8-1.521
This is a trace of the fsavd process. Its child fails with a SIGSEGV. I opened
a ticket with the vendor.
hmm unfortionately there is no hint at all in that strace about why
that application decides to segfault... seems the only way is to stick
a debugger (gdb) on it...
F-Secure told me to upgrade to the server version 4.61. That version
of the application works. I don't know if they are going to support
the workstation version 4.52 anymore. This item should be closed as it
is an application problem and not a kernel issue.
