you probably have the wrong version of libidl.dll, could you attach a zipped dwi
made by following the steps at
http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/dependency-walker.html use the command from
your step 1.

Even zipped output was over 500 KB, too large to download to Moz. 
libIDL-0.6.dll is being used with xpidl.  This was the version that came in the
SDK zipped download.
