I explicitly asked you to elaborate. The copy-pasted reply apparently
didn't do the job, so I invite you again to explain why you think that
the dlsym call is needed to do what RTLD_NOLOAD is supposed to do already.

Please, do explain. AFAIK I need the dlsym call gone to make the plugin
work, but alternative solutions are welcome too, of course.
