Bitcoin client versions 0.3.19 and 0.3.20.2 work fine on my Linux Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy).

But not so version 0.3.21:

When I use the executables of the package "bitcoin-0.3.21-linux.tar.gz", something strange happens:
A Wine program starter appears in the task bar for 10 or 20 seconds or so - and then it disappears again and nothing happens!

It just seems that I cannot start the executable in version 0.3.21, and I am surprised why the system seems to invoke a wine program starter in the first place... I am using the LINUX version, and NOT the WINDOWS version...

Any ideas or similar experiences?

Thanks!
Michael

PS: Attached two screenshots:
* The first screenshot shows the executables that are the files "bitcoin" and "bitcoind" that I took directly from the archive file of the "bin\32\" path and moved to my "~\.bitcoin\" directory. I also copied my wallet.dat there. Nothing more. Then I double clicked the file "bitcoin".
* Next screenshot shows the "Wine Windows Program Starter" that gets invoked after having clicked this. It disappeared again after 10 or 20 seconds or so, and nothing more happened.

PS2: I could not attach the screenshots, since the "upload folder is full"

Oh, I just realized that the executable files in version 0.3.21 tar.gz file have no executable rights (unlike those of version 0.3.19 and 0.3.20).
   -rw-r--r--

After having added "x"ecutable property, ...
   -rwxr-xr-x

...the program starts up normally.

My suggestion for the developers and the "packet makers" is to give the files "x" mode by default when creating the tar.gz file.
