As you probably know, -noshadow is a kluge, mostly intended 
for people who are using third-party software they are unable
to modify. Are you able to identify what the code is doing
that makes it need -noshadow? Usually it has to do with 
looking for data files in the directory from which the
assembly was loaded or on a path relative to it.
