I see it in syslog (I'm usually invoking lj2news from a cron script, but 
this happens when running it from the command-line too). The exact thing 
in syslog is:
Jul  6 09:35:25 b144-mcv1-mlt lj2news: Libgcrypt warning: missing 
initialization - please fix the application

I have Debian stable's gcrypt, which is libgcrypt11, Version: 1.4.5-2
