   I tried to split large dll in two smaller, I build them but none of
them could be loaded. I just have tried make it with clean trivial
example and it works, so that probably was other (mine) bug. Problem
is that windoze doesn't explain clearly where's error - it doesn't
load at all with that stupid status 'A device attached to the system
is not functioning' %) . By the way, testing that, I found that
dlltool doesn't want to export one-character symbols %)
