Hmm, what appears to be happening to me, is that there's some kind of a
fault during the DllMain of the loaded DLL, which causes it to get unloaded
and unmapped by the OS, leaving a stale entry in _main_tls->stack, causing
us to jump into unmapped space when sigbe tries to return there.
More later when I've understood it a bit better.
