I'm running 1.4 on Debian Etch, there's no problem with that choice.

This suggests that we need a bit more defensive programming to catch
the error that I can see below:

Thanks for running settings-tester.pl - that's very helpful!

Open up your opensrf.xml file in an XML-aware editor; the XML syntax
in that file is incorrect (maybe an open tag, or a comment that isn't
terminated, or something like that).

The following command might provide more help in where things went
wrong in the XML syntax:

xmllint --noout /openils/conf/opensrf.xml
