I've noticed this too in the past and assume this is just a not implemented
I did have a patch that made this better but it is not in yet - I'll see if
I can resurrect it repost and then commit if everyone is OK.
There is also actually EntryPointNotFoundException as well if the DLL is
found but the symbol isn't. The patch generated this too.
