Comment (by boklm):

 It seems that the issue is that `libgdk-3.so.0` on Ubuntu is linked to
 `libmirclient.so.9`, which is linked to a newer version of
 `libstdc++.so.6` than the one we ship.

 Some (probably not good) solutions could be:
 - building and shipping a `libgdk-3.so.0` (and maybe libgtk3?) that is not
 linked to `libmirclient.so.9`. However this will increase the complexity,
 build time, and size of our bundles.
 - building and shipping a `libmirclient.so.9` that is linked to our
 version of `libstdc++.so.6`.

 I think a better option might be to avoid having our version of
 `libstdc++.so.6` in `LD_LIBRARY_PATH` when the version installed on the
 system is newer. Maybe the `start-tor-browser` script could detect which
 version of `libstdc++.so.6` is available and only add our version to
 `LD_LIBRARY_PATH` when needed.
