[CentOS] C 5.2 and VMWAre error

A colleague has a newly built 64-bit CentOS 5.0 system that, through yum
updates, has become CentOS 5.2. VMWare Workstation and Player work fine
for my account on it. But a recent configuration of something under
their account has produced:
GTK Accessibility Module initialized
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmplayer: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libspi.so.0:
undefined symbol: atk_hyperlink_impl_get_type
The same error (I think) comes up if I try to invoke vmware (Workstation).
As a reminder, if I su - <my account> and run vmplayer, it works.
I typed env > env.txt for both accounts, diff'd them, and didn't see
anything obvious to my eyes.
I did the same for set > set.txt. Again, nothing obvious. I rebooted
the system. Same problem.
What is the most likely cause under their account if, on the same system,
it works fine for me?
Google searching didn't help much, either. A few posts about the same
problem, but no responses.
Thanks for any insights.
