Does the third-party dlls, have native dependencies (P/Invokes) or use
reflection to load other dlls? Both things will work against what mkbundle
tries to do. Nevertheless you can mkbundle just your main app and
system-level assemblies and have all yours and third=party dlls installed in
the same directory instead of being inside the bundle and it should work.
