Yes it is you :)
No, in fact this is an "impossible" bug. As the error message says, Max
function gives a wrong result! See :

#22164: Lazarus Startup Error: Invalid floating point operation.

__ My test code looks like this: __
  numg1, numg2: integer;
  if NumGlyphs > 1 then
    numg1 := NumGlyphs;
  numg2:=Max(1, NumGlyphs);
  if numg1 <> numg2 then
    raise Exception.CreateFmt('TButtonGlyph.GlyphChanged: Max(1, %d) gives
a wrong result %d, should be %d.',
                                [NumGlyphs, numg2, numg1]);

NumGlyphs is defined as a range:
  TNumGlyphs = 1..5;

One possible explanation is that the latest compiler has a bug with ranges,
maybe calling a wrong overloaded version of Max. Maybe it calls the float
version and makes a rounding error (?)
Who knows...
Anyway Max() really, actually, returns a wrong value, no joking!

I cannot reproduce it. I have a 64-bit system and my FPC trunk is few weeks
I can test with the latest FPC trunk, too.
