I noticed a particular behavior in the following situation on:

platform Windows
arch     x86
os       Win32
system   x86, Win32
major    1
minor    1.0
year     2000
month    June
day      15
language R

I've created  a DLL from a Fortran source and a R function to call it. I
noticed while testing the function that I had forgotten something, so I
unloaded the DLL, made the modifications to the Fortran source, recompiled,
reload and retest. This caused R to crash, so I restarted R (GUI) and made
another attempt to test the function and it work fine. It looks like
something is wrong maybe with dyn.unload or whatever. I tried something
similar with C source and the same thing appends. Is it R or Windows NT the

Thanks in advance.

PS I'm using the latest Cygnus suite of compilers in case this as something
to do with the problem.
