Sort of. I knew before that the Java bridge libraries would load the
other ones, but I didn't know it would matter. I thought that under the
hood, java.library.path would be equivalent to setting PATH, so I didn't
understand that one would fail where the other wouldn't.

I see, System.loadLibrary(). Never used that before.

I think so, too. Thanks for your help and advice in dealing with this.
