Please see package %changelog. We've rebuilt for the new expat
on Aug 29th:

  $ rpm -qpR audacity-1.3.2-16.fc8.x86_64.rpm|grep expat

Where do you see any dependency on libexpat.so.0?

Sorry for false alarm and thanks.
Now it works fine, but I want to describe the reason why this bug happends.
I used not clear installation of F8 but upgrade from F7. It upgrades packages
existing on DVD but stayed unupgraded packages from repository Everything. Some
of this packages needed for audacity stayed linked against libexpat.so.0 so the
situations happends which i was reported.
I should make yum update all to fix the situation. But it takes a long time to
complete on my internet connection. BTW after installing compat-expat1 audacity
fails to run with
*** glibc detected *** audacity: free(): invalid pointer: 0x0000000000d3d9c0 ***
and the long backtrace following
I decided to someway halfreport problems - the unclear run fail to wait until
yum update all finishes, and mistakenly clear missing dependency report. (there
was really unclear audacity or it's libs linked against libexpat.so.0)
The result of this situation:
1. yum update all must be made after upgrading from previous version after
configuring all repositories (or some stage must exists in installer during upgrade)
2. more research must be made before reporting the bug even if situations seems
I'm writing this for people to have experience in such situations.
