   The following happens:

   1) Source code to an executable is released under the GPL by author #1.
   2) Source code is lightly modified by author #2 and then included as a
   DLL bundled with a new GPL app by a author #2.

   How should the copyright info be handled?

The DLL bundle must be licensed under the the same terms as the GNU
GPL (see section 2 of the GNU GPL).  This is because the DLL bundle is
a deriviate work.
