1. I'd output the console message before the gui one.

2. You never clear that environment variable... what happens
when an app just tests for the existence of a DLL by
trying to load it?  We don't want to print an error then.
(That's why I originally suggested clearing the env var
after the app finished loading.  That's still broken -- it
won't catch errors in helper exes -- but it's better than nothing.)
