Thank you for this clarification.  So load-time dlls are resolved (in
ntdll.exe or some such) using PATH and run-time dlls loaded with
dlopen() are resolved with LD_LIBRARY_PATH?  I'm obviously not intimate
with Cygwin's architecture, but I'm guessing that explicitly using
LoadLibrary is still going to use PATH.
You're obviously not intimate with Windows either.  The search algorithm
in Windows is more involved than PATH.  You need to study more.

My concern is with the dynamic portion of this behavior -- what is affected by environment variables.
