+Summary: mono_set_rootdir() breaks under plain windows
+Both mint and mono call mono_set_rootdir() to override the compile-time
+assembly location with a run time relative path.  This breaks when running
+the windows builds outside of cygwin.
+Debug prints show "file loading ./../lib\corlib.dll".  The mix of '/' and
+'\' isnt the problem, as the function quite happily loads
+"C:/cygwin/home/dick/mono/install/lib\corlib.dll" when I remove the
+mono_set_rootdir() call.
+Further investigation shows that it also works if I first cd to a location
+where ../lib/corlib.dll is a valid relative path.
