I don't think it's a matter of changed names. I believe I removed libgncmod-
backend-xml-utils.dll from the build altogether. IIRC it was only used for 
cutecash which has been removed from the source tree.

The dll in your bin directory is likely still there from an earlier build. And 
it looks the entry point errors are because it was built with compiler options 
from before John fixed exception handling on Windows.

As you figured out, deleting the file should fix it.
