No. I'm not sure there is a problem here, but I will check and correct
if necessary.

No, no symbols within the modules are accessed outside of g_module_open
& g_module_symbol. I just am a bit confused about what cygwin needs in
the IMPORTS file.

None whatsoever. So my guess about what was causing the crash is
probably wrong.
