This ERROR is harmless: it probably means that
/opt/trinity/lib/kgtk/ is 64-bit and matlab is 32-bit, though
a number of other more unlikely possibilities exist.

(Well, it's harmless except that Matlab won't use the qt-kgtk themes.)

I think you'll find that these two things are unrelated. The error
message has no effect on anything else other than that the library in
LD_PRELOAD / /etc/ is not loaded. None. I suspect a bug in
your .login or .tcshrc. (I'd offer debugging suggestions, but it's been
fifteen years since I last used a csh derivative in anger, and I can't
remember the tcsh equivalent of set -x...)
