As two people have the same problem I think it's time to use linux tools to
analyse this.  Can you:

1. run ldd on your binary (ldd /.../bin/imp2ld) and post the output.

2. run the program with strace to reproduce the problem (strace -o
/tmp/imp2ld.strace imp2ld [arg1] [...]).  Wait few seconds until you think
it's looping, you can stop it with Ctrl-C.  Don't post the output file
(/tmp/imp2ld.strace) in the list as it will probably huge, but use an free
online service (like http://pastebin.com/ or if you can read french
http://dl.free.fr/).  This file will display any system call and answer,
allowing us to see I/O errors and things like that.

3. run the program with gdb:
	gdb imp2ld
	(gdb is starting)
	run [arg1] [....]
	(wait until you think it's looping)
	(hit Ctrl-C)
it will produce a backtrace of the stack, allowing us to see where is it
looping. Just post the backtrace on the list.
