Do you have libmysqlclient installed? Have you checked the library
dependencies of mysql.so? If you don't have the libraries that this DLL
requires it will fail to load.
Also, it's very suspicious that you'd be using what looks like a
native-compiled module (i.e. MSVCRT) in a Cygwin binary. That's usually
a recipe for failure.
