have you tried to change that to:

__declspec(dllexport) static int t1 = 6969;

There is nothing particularly strange about it. Static class data is
 just like static C data. It lives within a compilation unit, which is
 basically a single .CPP file. If you use the correct
 __declspec(dllexport) / __declspec(dllimport) declaration on your
 class, then you shouldn't have a problem. Perhaps your static data
 needs to be initialized? Does your static data have a non-trivial
 constructor? If so, then you must realize that these constructors are
 run by the DLL loader, which is built into your DLL by the linker. You
 must take care not to use such objects until after the DLL loader has
 finished running.

Thanks for the response.  This was exactly my understanding, but
somehow this is not what I'm experiencing.  For example, to even back
away from C++ into C I have this code:

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {

extern __declspec(dllexport) int t1;
extern __declspec(dllexport) int *t2;

#ifdef __cplusplus

Then in the .cpp file I have

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {

__declspec(dllexport) int t1 = 6969;
__declspec(dllexport) int *t2 = 0;

#ifdef __cplusplus

When I look at these vars in the debugger, I get absolute garbage and
when I try to write to them, I get crashes from access violations.
This is with VS2008 and my project set to a dll build.  I don't think
there's anything particularly wrong with my code.  <sigh>
