I think we saw something similar when getting our unit tests set up (I
think we had an even more pathological case where the unit test was
finding the wrong versions of the right DLLs). I agree that the
resulting problem is confusing and tricky to debug.
I'm not sure how much CMake can help, though. Isn't this more of a
weakness in Windows error reporting?
