That was the primary intent. I'm glad you understood the intent, humour and
irony is not always clear in mails...

As I said, it's in my eyes hilarious that I "must" discuss this, no offense
to anyone is meant.

For all clarity and all involved:

Notwithstanding the bug I mentioned in my mail to Ondrej 
(still waiting for the moderator to approve my mail) :

I can live with the current behaviour, but I really don't think it is logical,
(even taking into account "context" :)) and I think Delphi in this instance has it 'right'.
