For apps, Windows searches for DLLs at:
* The .exe file directory.
* The current directory.
* The %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32 directory.
* The %SystemRoot% directory.
* The directories in your Path (wich means that it should
  find libdb40.dll because the Subversion path are in %PATH%).

KnownDLLs are DLLs who should be found elsewhere and it's place in the
registry is HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager.

I have no idea why somone can't get this thing to work when libdb40.dll
are in the path so I will make the installer register the DLL anyway (it
won't hurt). It's possible that the people who had trouble with this
should have restarted the machine (even XP still needs restart in some
cases), I must read and learn more on this.

I will probably have to register the ssh dll's as well. This will be done
in time for the 0.18 release.
