Socket problems under windows: cannot load Socket.so under windows

When trying to run the following code (excerpt) using sockets
with ruby 165-2 (cygwin port) and higher releases using the native win32
ports from the pragmatic programmers:

···

require "ProcessManager.rb"
require ‘Socket’

a = ProcessManager.instance
runEndless = true

Open the server connection

gs=TcpServer.open(0)
adress=gs.adress
adress.shift

printf (“Process Server started on %s\n”,adress.join(":"))

Mainloop

while runEndless

Thread.start(gs.accept) do |s|

print (s, " has connected")
theConn = PMConnection::new(s)

 # print the welcome message
 theConn.welcomeMessage
 theConn.prompt

 # commandline loop
 while( theConn.doCommand )
  theConn.prompt
 end

#goodby to the thread
print (s, " has disconnected")
s.close
end #do
end # while runEndless

exit 0

(some code removed…)

i get the following error:

c:\Documents and Settings\jkleemann.JENS-WKS\Desktop\ruby\node>ruby
ProcessServer.rb
ProcessServer.rb:7:in `require’: dlsym: Win32 error 127 -
/cygdrive/g/rubycw/lib/ruby/1.6/i386-cygwin/Socket.so (LoadError)
from ProcessServer.rb:7

Since it seems the ruby kernel cannot load the Socket.so (some form of dll
in the cygwin world i guess) i dont know what to do. This problem occurs
under winXP, win2K with cygwin 165-2 and win32 168-8. Any idea

the path to the .so is g:\rubycw… so the cygwin mapping
(/cygdrive/g/…) seems to be ok

Both of Ruby and dynamic linker of Windows are case sensitive,
while Windows file system is not.
