Removed some of the static linking, hoping this version will work. Let me know how it's crunching.

Hi Travis.

I haven't had a problem with the 0.44 app strangely enough, I have now got 0.46 & 0.47 apps do you want me to abort the 0.46's or let them run.?

If it's running for you that's fine. Some users are reporting problems with these binaries because I tried using static linking things to speed them up (and because some users were reporting problems with missing libraries).

G'Day Travis,
Whatever you have done is big improvement on before (v0.42), as my 64 Bit Linux work units are 1,000 seconds faster than before (from 4,600 seconds down to 3,600 seconds) which makes the credit system look a lot better as well (it was quite poor for my AMD computers, but now much better).
They are running a few hundred seconds faster now than my 32 Bit Windows work units.

Thanks

Conan

Well that only lasted as long as the 0.44 to 0.46 versions, as the 0.47 version is back to 4,600 seconds again and as slow as before (version 0.42), this is for 64 Bit Linux.

Bit disappointing, as version 0.46 ran fine on my computer and still gave the faster run time, but at least the work units are still running error free and we have work, which is great.

Thanks

Yeah I wonder what the issue was. Maybe some versions of linux have issues with everything being compiled statically?
