You need to use lttng-ust and lttng-tools (and lttng-modules if you use 
the kernel tracer) from the same release branch. So everything needs to 
be 2.4.x, or everything 2.3.x, etc.

If you compiled lttng-ust 2.4 from source, but the distro package 
installed lttng-tools let's say 2.2, it's expected that they wouldn't 
work. :)  However I'd suppose some sort of user-friendly message should 
be printed if incompatible versions are used together.
