Just for comparison, your document "works for me" using TL2009-pretest
on Ubuntu 9.04 (amd64) with the OpenType fonts:


$ fc-list | grep Libertine
Linux Libertine:style=Bold
Linux Libertine O:style=Bold Italic
Linux Libertine O C:style=Regular
Linux Libertine O:style=Regular
Linux Libertine C:style=Regular
Linux Libertine O:style=Italic
Linux Libertine C:style=apitals
Linux Libertine:style=Italic
Linux Libertine:style=Bold Italic
Linux Libertine O:style=Bold
Linux Libertine:style=Regular
