Yes, that's what I did.  I *do* have Cygwin on my machine, so I thought perhaps it was loading a
different version of the DLL (though it shouldn't, the search should start with '.'), so I killed
the PATH. Same error. So I killed all other versions of the DLL.  Same error. To be totally sure,
I opened the DLL in my editor and changed "find out" to "piss off". Yup, it was loading your DLL,
but that DLL complained about a version mismatch.  So I assumed you must have included the wrong
DLL. However, in light of Reuben's reply, it looks more like Cygwin.dll compares it's version
number against something in the registry. Bad mojo.

In any case, I just removed *your* DLL and let it load *mine*, and everything was fine.

Great work!  I played Tali for a half and hour... :)
