OK, last posting on this thread - the combinations I have tried and the 
results are

ggobi           Rggobi   Result

1.0-1-beta      1.1-0    segfault
1.0-1-beta      1.1-1    segfault
1.0-0-beta      1.1-0    segfault
1.0-0-beta      1.1-1    segfault
1.0-0           1.1-0    segfault
1.0-0           1.1-1    segfault
1.0-0           1.0.0      OK     (with previously mentioned fix 
ammended as per BR's advice)

Obviously there are a couple of other combinations, but I'll stop there 
for now. Note that the ggobi builds are all with the default configure
