To this specific question, the things that I can think of is if two DLLs
(or the app itself) links with slightly different versions of the same
static library, that might cause strange bugs. Or if different DLLs
link to the same static malloc library and that that in turn produces
multiple heaps causing pain should pointers be passed across the DLL

If libtool should be in the business of protecting from such disasters
is another matter...
