and 4 other locations.  Windows looks for DLLs this way:

  1. The directory from where the current process was loaded.
  2. The current directory
  3. The Windows system directory (cf. GetSystemDirectory)
  4. The 16 bit system directory
  5. The Windows directory (cf. GetWindowsDirectory)
  6. The directories listen in $PATH.

Given that this DLL is requirement for many application, you should
install it into the Windows directory.  Or modify cygwin to allow
loading of that DLL from a different place; I bet there is at least an
environment variable to do this.
