I haven't been reading this closely since my eyes immediately crust over
when I see things like JDK or Java (requiring painful application of
a cold chisel for crust removal) but if you are trying to use cygwin dlls
in a non-cygwin process, that won't work.  It used to work in the past,
if you called the right initialization functions in the cygwin dll, but
it has been broken for a while and no one has shown any interest in fixing
the problem.
