I'm not that happy with the patch.  The patch is doing two things, one
is to remember child as late as possible, the other is to change the
child startup in case the parent loaded dlls.

Either write a more descriptive commit message or split this into two
patches.  I'd prefer two patches.  It may help debugging.
