well, there are several issues
first, when you set the breakpoint the DLL isn't loaded yet, so
it's symbols are not available
secondly, the bug Gérard reported (mixup between export and import
table for a DLL). The second bug hasn't been fixed yet (my patch
hasn't been accepted)

so the only available solution is :
- turn on breakpoints when a new DLL is loaded 
- when USER32 is loaded, set this breakpoint
	b USER32.DLL.FindResourceA
- continue as needed 
- you could turn on break on dll load (if needed)
	set $BreakOnDllLoad=0
