This is part of mail exchange with Roland.  Although the complete fix requires changes in glibc, we'll still need to change the Hurd itself afterward.

>>$ ./store x:x # This test program calls store_typed_open.
>> ./store: cannot load libstore_x.so.0.3: libstore_x.so.0.3: cannot open
>> shared object file: No such file or directory
>> store_typed_open: Function not implemented
>> This is printed in libstore/module.c:open_class when there is error and it is not ENOENT.  It seems that dlopen doesn't return ENOENT when shared object is not found.

I don't think dlopen actually sets errno reliably, or is required to.  So the kludge there doesn't even work.  Note it's marked with XXX because I knew it sucked when I wrote it.  Unfortunately I think the only correct thing to do is always eat the error message, or perhaps display it only with some runtime debugging option turned on by the user.  It would be nice to be able to see errors from a bogus module that doesn't load properly, but the situation where you can't distinguish that from a missing module is the same e.g. for nss modules.
