Confirming. Windows build 14946 is fine.
Cygwin64, Msys2 (both x32 and x64) now works correctly.
As well as Msys2-based tools, like git for windows.
May be that was a bug in Windows: FreeLibrary() unload wrong .DLL image
with same filename. Suspect that it's not a typical situation for
developers of Windows when some app/lib sequentially loads/unloads same
.DLL but on different positions. As Windows actually unload .DLLs after
some delay - it just unloaded wrong image. That's my guessing.
