Problem with anonymous ftp access

Hi all,
I have a problem with setting up anonymous ftp access on
my NT4 box. I can login as anonymous and cd around, but
as soon as I try a "dir" or "ls", the ftpd process dies because
it does not find the cygwin1.dll. Upon second thought, this is
the expected behaviour, because ftpd does a chroot() to
~ftp. Exactly the same thing happens when I do a chroot
in a bash shell.
Copying cygwin1.dll to ~ftp/bin cures the problem, but 
having two copies around is asking for trouble.

I believe my ntsec/system PATH/mounttable are OK because I
can telnet/ftp/rsync into my box.
