Cygwin built DLL invoked from MSC app doesn't seem to be all there.

It's seems that only some bits of the cygwin API work inside a dll
invoked from a none cygwin applications.
Given the following....
---- server_body.c ----
int __declspec (dllexport)
fprintf(stderr, "Hi there\n");
gcc -c -g -o server_body.o server_body.c
dllwrap --output-def server.def --add-stdcall-alias \
-Wl,-e,__cygwin_noncygwin_dll_entry@12 --implib libserver.a \
--driver-name gcc -o server.dll server_body.o
If loaded from an off-the-shelf scriptics tclsh80 (8.05 I think) with
`load server.dll server' the sleep(20) doesn't.
The fprintf works, sleep() and other stuff doesn't. I think select()'s
screwed too... code which uses it did work when invoked from a cygwin
application so I haven't bothered messing with it much..
Invoking, it in a very simplier manner, from inside a commercial lump of
junk yields the same results.
Anyone got any thoughts? I getting really close to having to use
micromush tools and yucky ugly stuff like that..
