Because the dll - backend is loaded recursivly about 100.000 times...
actually dll doesn't segfault, but sooner or later one of the backends
segfaults when allocating new memory.

Ok, might be... I've another fix: instead of linking libsane.* to
sane/libsane-dll.* we could copy libsane-dll.* to libsane.* and remove
the dll-backend from the lib/sane/ directory. This way, the dll-backend
can't load itself (because it isn't present as a backend)
what about this?
