Sorry, I haven't had time to investigate this.

The problem is that I don't see any connection between your proposed
change and the failed test. I'm not disputing that your change makes a
problematic symptom go away. But I haven't been able to invest enough
time to really understand why that might be so.

The whole issue of dynamically loaded DLLS/shared libraries has been a
festering sore for at least 20 years now. It's undefined by the
standard and the committee has not seen fit to address it. Sorry it just
takes time to get this right.
