Yeah - I find the same, now that I come to test.
It seems to be something specifically related to the gmp dll. That is, I can
build a couple of simple dynamic libs that have the same type of
relationship, and there's no problem. It's only when the "other" dynamic lib
needs libgmp-3.dll that the problem arises. I expect there's a way around
the problem .... I'm not so sure that I *expect* to be able to find that
way - but if I do, then I'll post back.

No such problem on linux, btw. Looks to me that this might warrant a bug
