Well, the problem appears to be with FPC 3.0.2. Writing just a simple
'Hello World' using the FP IDE exhibits the same problem. Downgrading
to FP 3.0.0 and Lazarus 1.6.2-1 means everything is back to normal. I
guess I'd better head over to the Pascal group and post details there,
unless somebody has beaten me to it.
