So what you are saying is that cygin passes a full filename to
LoadModule and uses its own logic to find that module?  Then they
should also have a standard directory to look for or Cygwin is
severly broken.

Sorry I don't understand: You say that there is a fixed location to
look for DLLs and in particular for the cygwin DLL.  Where is the
problem then?  GnuPG does not know about this DLL; the cygwin
toolchain adds the code to load that DLL.
