Imagebase in PE header is something a bit of optional, that means if two
dlls with same imagebase, the OS kernel will automaticly relocate one of
them, to put them in different virtual spaces. So, rebase should be a
utility for optimizing the overall start-up speed, to reduce avoidable
relocations, rather then fix start-up errors.
