My fault. I didn't expect to run into that much trouble. The fpc sources were once very nice, and so lazarus used the newest cvs. So, I hoped, this comments will stay only for a few days and then everything will be fine. But since two months lazarus has nothing but troubles with the fpc. The cvs gives permission denieds, the process.pp overloads important structures of classes.pp, TFilestream was unusable (This was fixed), execl is restricted to shortstring, and the fpc sometimes can't compile the lazarus IDE in one step (this bug was not in the fpc from 8/15), ...
Don't ask me about the 1.1 :(
Since all these bugs are reported and (except the one-step-compile-bug and the 1.1) are very easy to fix, I think, that currently all of the fpc team must be very busy. Normally they fix bugs in a few days.
So, we have to wait.

This is a bug in process.pp. Plz comment TPoint and TRect in process.pp. Or: The alternative is to replace all TPoint with Classes.TPoint in all lazarus units that uses process and all your programs as well. I prefer to just comment this stupid TPoint/TRect overloading in process.pp.
