sorry keep bugging you guys, but this is somehow a wield problem that
I am eager to solve.

I checked the permission and it looks fine to me:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 26 Nov 28 04:06 /usr/lib/

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 2862900 Oct 15 14:23

I even run with root, the error message "ImportError:
/usr/lib/ undefined symbol:
atk_object_add_relationship" still comes out.

I always try to avoid installing packages manually, rpm or apt-get is
my preferred way. However, this time, it beats my working principle
because this error message appeared after I upgraded packages using
"synaptic", an apt-get GUI. now, I don't even trust apt-get:(
