A nice transliteration for a dirty thing :-) And one of the reasons,
I first became aware of the problems on delivery to beta-testers
(which of course didn't have LfW installed)

It's always a mess, I you have (same or different) multiple instances
of DLLs distributed on your system but need to load a specific on in
a given application. I've contacted the author to prepend his 
application clibs path to his PATH environment on application startup.
I will report results, when he did so.

Regards and thanks for your input Jørgen
