Run the problematic application under cmd to get the
missing-entry-point/missing-dll popup box. When run by a cygwin
application (such as bash), the error is intentionally squelched by
cygwin1.dll and treated instead as exit status 53, because it is annoying
to have a non-interactive script file block while waiting for an
interactive user to dismiss a modal popup box.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
