There is a bug in the TypInfo.pp for setting shortstrings (two simple typos).
I have already committed the bug.
Because the most are using the stable version of fpc, we can fix it using a
simple workaround til a fixed version is available.
Just copying the four procedures SetIndexValues, SetSStrProp, SetAStrProp and
SetStrProp and replacing in the SetSStrProp the GetProc with the SetProc
should do the trick.
I will test it.
