Ewww.  That's bad.  Someone didn't bump the so-version of
libgnomesupport.  Sorry, no quick fix that I can think of.

I would suggest that you uninstall `libgnome0' if you can.  If there are
applications that depend on it, please ask the Debian package
maintainers to upgrade those to the newer libraries -- and in the
meantime you can just as well uninstall them (or at least de-configure
them so that libgnome0 can be uninstalled).
