I didn't say error. I said compatibility warning. 'Designer' has 8 letters and they are the same to the first 8 letters of 'DesignerStr', so this can be a problem on DOS 8-3 filesystems and therefore fpc warns. It's just a warning, not the reason for the crashes. I have renamed the unit to objinspstrconsts.pas. I think, the name is better than designerstr.pas, because it contains the resourcestrings for the OI and its units.

This probably means a stack overflow. 
Since two weeks the codetools show cache inconsistencies. But because the codetool cache systems are the big part of the IDE mem, this can mean nothing.
