this is more like an observation an not a problem: in the past I
noticed some third party applications compiled against Cygwin that
wouldn't because of missing dependencies/DLLs. This was quite obvious
as I got a big pop-up saying something like "cannot find cygwhatever-
x.y.dll". Then I could look for the package containing the DLL and
everything was fine.
This seems to have changed as nowadays applications just silently
return without any visible error. I have to run "strace app" to see
the same error I used to see without strace.
Is there some kind of "API change" or is it mere coincidence?
