"The a.out has some problems with dlclose.  It doesn't properly
unmap objects which are dlclosed.  That's a known problem (though a
serious one for programs which dlopen then dlclose lots of objects,
because it causes address space exhaustion), but it has a
previously-unknown side-effect.

If a single object is dlopened, then dlclosed, then dlopened _again_,
the relocations will be processed again.  That causes obvious
