You need 2.2.6b (not 'a'!) to fix the problem.

If the local load problem does affect 1.5.x I need help in coming up with a
patch as I can't do a version update for older released products.

A patch for 1.5.26 does exist (see "";). There is no patch for 1.4.X versions. All versions of libltdl since perhaps late '99 have the issue so this is a good time to try to upgrade libltdl to a consistent modern version. 1.5.26 with the patch should be modern enough for existing distributions but of course updating to libtool 2.2.6b is preferred due to the huge number of libtool improvements.

That said, there is cause for concern under Linux, but (usually) no need for alarm.
