wysiwyg is hand rolling its own get_libraries function, so the above patches will not work for wysiwyg when it's looking for libraries if the libraries are located in a base profile (not the current top level install profile).
Patch is attached. Uses libraries module functions (which are the ones patched above), if they are available, to get all available libraries.
Adding some clarity to original post.
Rolling own library was a big problem. Have not yet tested this patch but it is critical to support growing distro base.
I can confirm the patch in #1 works! Thanks.
