well, the qglviewer in debian was abadoned about three years ago, but
still wasn't removed from the distribution. The author of new qglviewer
did not find out that the name has already been used in the past. It's that simple.

If you start developing some new program better you check whether the
name is already used, or some weird things may happen :)

good :) feel free to ask any other questions. I noticed you on the IRC,
but I was sleeping at the time when you asked about this qglviewer problem.
