Because the DLL search path in Windows is roughly "executable directory,
Windows\System32, Windows, %PATH%". Unfortunately, GIMP's plug-ins are all
individual executables, but they don't reside in the same directory as
gimp.exe, and as such look for DLLs in the System32 directory before
looking in GIMP's install dir.
