The problem appeared recently, probably after an upgrade; I suspect the
offending package could be from glibc-2.2.93-5 to glibc-2.3.2-4.80 but not sure
Aaargh, I should have searched better !
As explained in #81018 upgraded vte (vte-0.10.25-1.i386.rpm from RawHide), made
a symbolic link (/usr/lib/libvte.so.2 -> /usr/lib/libvte.so.4) to make
gnome-terminal-2.0.1-5 happy and all is fine again.
