Somehow this thread reminds my one open bug : 

I have found out that you need to have either linked against libc or 
have small binary stub generated from assembler source (like 64-bit 
pascal programs/libraries have that doesn't link against libc) linked 
against your 32-bit program so it can access PHDR structure without 
crashing on access violation exception.
