Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Yet something wrong with libssb linkage: firefox.exe, mozsqlite3.dll,
 mozalloc.dll, mozglue.dll links it statically, while nspr4.dll links it
 dynamically.  Every dll  with statically linked libssp calling
 ADVAPI32.dll functions and no crash. Need to build all modules linked
 dynamically or statically, no mix it. Then to test.

 And seems like getting "true" random data for Windows from Dll entry-point
 is risky task, Windows need to load tons of another components to lunch
 PRNG. "return 4" should be enough for SSP.
