[lazarus] Why is this not working? (PChar conversion)

Working on converting a component from Delphi 5...

Given this:

  FComments: String;
  p : PChar;

This line compiles fine:

  p := PChar(ExtractFilename(FFileSource));

But this line generates an illegal type conversion:

  p := PChar(FComments);

Any ideas?
