Good question, I don't know. I suppose there is memory corruption
earlier, and due to it anything weird can happen later, so the exit
status is not really reliable.
It's exposed by try_iterate which calls lt_dlforeachfile. I think it's
somewhere in dirent code. I have a feeling that it's not caused by
anything in Libtool, but am not sure. (Only noting this because it may
ring a bell, not because I have any evidence.)
