Oh that's interesting, there is qgis-dev.exe as well as qgis-dev.bat, 
which means the .bat file will never run unless invoked with full path. 
The run precedence order is normally .com, .exe, .bat[1].

In any case, on my machine I get the same dll load error when attempting 
to start qgis-dev, regardless of using the .bat or .exe. I can't rule 
out an incomplete install problem though because of a recently 
discovered apt bug[2], which is how I installed qgis-dev.
