I tried the same thing last night with Kylix 3. It seems Kylix (and
probably Delphi) doesn't even have such a hint to start with. Kylix
never reported the hint FPC does.

That obviously doesn't mean Kylix & Delphi fixed the issue - it might
simply mean that FPC has more hints & warnings support than what Kylix &
Delphi does.
