Some more background:
The actual issue was initially detected when observing that the 'tarfile' package produced a tar containing different permissions, depending on the script being executed by 'cygwin python' or 'native python'.

When using native python to do the 'untar', I did not observe any issue (as it seems to automatically add 'read and execute' for all files).
But, when I used 'cygwin tar', the .dll did not get its 'read and execute' permission (as it was not specified in the tar file), which then resulted in program that crashed (with a very unhelpful message). Allowing 'read and execute' manually resolved the crash.

So, although this permission should not mean anything, it does seem to have some influence :(
