Shared object crashes when loaded into memory with dlopen.

No problem if option Use dynamic RTL/STL from Project/Options/Linker/ is selected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a shared object library not selecting Use dynamic RTL/STL.

2. Load it with dlopen (second parameter does not affect) :
void *pLib;
pLib = dlopen( sFileName, RTLD_NOW );

Call causes SIGSEGV and crashes the program. By using CPU debugger
I found that there seems to be a bug in static libraries. Segment
violation comes from function _BorUnwind_SetunhandledExceptionFilter. It
seems that it accesses data without relocating pointers or using register ebx as offset.

Known problem. See the readme: Section
"Cannot statically link CLX or RTL code into C(++) shared objects"
