Nope, that's not it. I think I /have/ traced it now: it's a packaging error
in libxml2 package itself. It contains the dll, but the maintainer forgot to
package it with the correct prefix. You might be able to fix the problem by a
mv /bin/cygxml2-2.dll /bin/libxml2.dll
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
