Package: ncmpcpp
Version: 0.7.4-1+b1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

ncmpcpp is not able to start at all. any attempt to start results into this:

bash$ ncmpcpp 
ncmpcpp: symbol lookup error: ncmpcpp: undefined symbol: 

I tried to check what is missing:

bash$ echo _ZN6TagLib6String14WCharByteOrderE|c++filt

though it looks like taglib is available in my system:

bash$ dpkg -l | grep libtag
ii  libtag-extras1             1.0.1-3+b1         amd64        TagLib extras 
library - support for more file formats
ii  libtag1v5:amd64            1.11+dfsg.1-0.1    amd64        audio meta-data 
ii  libtag1v5-vanilla:amd64    1.11+dfsg.1-0.1    amd64        audio meta-data 
library - vanilla flavour
ii  libtaglib-ocaml            0.3.1-1+b3         amd64        OCaml bindings 
for the TagLib Audio Meta-Data Library

ldd also shows, that all dependencies are in place:

mpd itself is working and I can connect with just mpc there. only ncmpcpp 
doesn't work as expected.

Which is exactly what happened in unstable ~1 day ago as part of the
transition. So this seems to be a totally normal unstable disturbance
and not a bug.
