concurrent use of cygwin1.dll for 1.5 & 1.7 ??

While installing cygwin1.7 into another node (cygwinII), I'm wondering 
if there are problems with BOTH 1.5 and 1.7 cygwin1.dll (in different 
directories) being loaded at the same time?  I keep running into errors 
as such: *** fatal error - system shared memory version mismatch detected

The 1.5 version is loaded in production while I like to run the 1.7 
version to do some testing

I think I know the answer:  DON'T DO DADT!!
