Great! that fixed it!

For your information, all that was needed was to do this in the (still running) lisp system:

(loadfile "libtiff.dll")

and then re-execute the mapping between my lisp functions and the library, e.g. loading in a file that has this in it

(defforeign 'tiffclose :entry-point
   "TIFFClose"
  :arguments '(integer)
  :return-type :integer)

The server stayed up throughout the operation. No local anesthesia even.
