Oh, geez. This sounds like either the dreaded DLL rebasing problem, or a
BLODA.  For the latter problem, see if any of these applications are

install dash and rebase (err...wait. Have I uploaded those yet? Ooops.
Okay, wait until I upload them...)

and then follow the instructions to run 'rebaseall'.

Until then, if you have cygwin installed (or access to the microsoft
'rebase' tool) you could use THAT to try and rebase the msys dll itself:

rebase -b 0x30000000 /path/to/msys-1.0.dll
