possibly that but the different name probably was more of the culprit... you 
didn't say that you had renamed it in the dll path, though... but then, what 
else would break if it was renamed? as i suggested before, i think you need, in 
code, to determine what OS you are running on and then attempt to load the dll 
with the proper name for that OS... apparently it has one name on *nix and 
another on winwhatever ;)
