I am writing as I met this kind of error few times.
Another possibile reason I can think of is that you are linking to a
library that was compiled with 1-33

Sometimes something change and you are convinced to link to a library
and instead (because of some name changes for example)
you are linking to a different library which is linking to the old library.

Good luck !
