If you've changed the  /usr/bin/enlightenment_start.oe as I've
suggested, surely the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is affected.
So, removing that parameter from there would fix the issues, since e17
should take the E_PREFIX var to get the needed libraries from the
/usr/e17 path.
I've just tested this in my Om2008 environment, and now I can run with
no problem my "old" efl apps (neon, omview, om-settings...).
