This is the first and only message I see.

I have exercised the dynamic loading functionality successfully elsewhere, 
using dlopen and dlsym to obtain libraries from the "rom" directory, so it 
probably isn't the act of loading libraries that causes this problem.

Is there some way of interpreting the "PFA" value or getting more information 
about where the exception really occurs?
