Offhand I would expect this to work ok.  You might verify that
USE_LTDL is set on Windows; see the two definitions of _Jv_SetDLLSearchPath
in natSystemProperties.cc.

Filing a bug report is a good idea.  Put '[win32]' in the synopsis.
Note though that Windows-specific things are worked on very rarely; in
fact we're having a problem getting an existing patch tested on
Windows, and this is turning into a blocker.
