Interesting, thanks for looking in to this Ludo. I've just thought that
this could be the cause of my problems in booting one of my GuixSD
machines, as I am using the mysql service (with MariaDB).
When you say dynamic loading is supposed not to work with a statically
linked guile, does this mean that activation scripts should avoid using
(ice-9 popen)? Or, given that it works some of the time, it could be
made to work reliably...?
