Thank you in advance.

yes and yes.

I think we have never seen fixes patchable into the main sources.
The only place I've heard that got it working was uni-essen.de
and they seem to have used an almost completely different version of
src/unix/dynload.c from Heiner Schwarte
(and I think I've never seen their version..).
Yes, it would really be great if this problem could finally be solved!
