I just tried compiling the main2.c with VC++. 

When running, the thing crashes when the DLL function is called. An access
violation occurs in cygwin.dll. The foo.dll that is built uses cygwin.dll for
its printf function. If I take the printf out of the foo.dll code the VC++
main2.exe will run just fine. 

I think when a gnuwin32 main program is linked, some code to initialize the
cygwin system is included. Since we compile the main program here using VC++, I
suspect that the cygwin.dll never gets initialized, and crashes when its
functions are called. It is possible that this might be fixed by adding some
initialization routines to the dll_entry routine for the dll.
