"dumpbin mydll.dll" will show section names and sizes

I have 2 builds of PLplot.dll - both are the same size (3,327,028 bytes). I have named one of them PLplot_broken.dll, and the other PLplot_ok.dll. They can be obtained from:
http://www.sisyphusion.tk/junk/PLplot_broken.dll and http://www.sisyphusion.tk/junk/PLplot_ok.dll
Both were built using the same compiler, and against the same plplot static library.
Running 'dumpbin PLplot_broken.dll' and 'dumpbin PLplot_ok.dll produces identical results (except of course, for the file name that is reported):
Microsoft (R) COFF/PE Dumper Version 7.00.9466 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. Dump of file PLplot_ok.dll File Type: DLL Summary 1000 .CRT B000 .bss 6000 .data 1000 .debug_abbrev 1000 .debug_aranges B3000 .debug_info 1B000 .debug_line 92000 .debug_loc A000 .debug_ranges 2000 .debug_str C000 .edata 16000 .eh_frame 2000 .idata 16000 .rdata 4E000 .reloc 10E000 .text 1000 .tls
If I use PLplot_ok.dll as the PLplot.dll I get:
C:\>pmver PDL::Graphics::PLplot 0.61
If I use PLplot_broken.dll as the PLplot.dll I get:
C:\>pmver PDL::Graphics::PLplot Can't load 'C:/MinGW/perl589/site/lib/auto/PDL/Graphics/PLplot/PLplot. +dll' for module PDL::Graphics::PLplot: load_file:%1 is not a valid Wi +n32 application at C:/MinGW/perl589/lib/DynaLoader.pm line 226. at -e line 1 Compilation failed in require at -e line 1.
Any advice on how I might be able to come to an understanding of why one is ok, but the other not, would be most welcome.

Cheers,
Rob
