Blah, that sucks!

It would make a nice feature though. Is there something like a 'wishlist' for Lua that I can submit ideas to?

I tried 5.1.1 and then 5.1.2, both give the same result.

I also tried MessageBox in user32.dll, same result.

As mentionned in package.loadlib manual entry, the functions you can
retrieve with it must be of the type lua_CFunction. You can't access
arbitrary C functions. IIRC there are modules out there that add that
functionnality, but stock Lua can't do what you want.
