Isn't the better fix to make KLibLoader try dlsym() on the
global handle returned by dlopen(NULL, ..) as well?
The current behaviour does not sound like a bug to me, but maybe I
misunderstood the situation.
The shared library in question does *import* the missing symbol, but
not *export* it - so dlsym() has no reason to find it in it's dlopen() handle,
