Seems to be it was in earlier versions too... But anyways I cannot see
what I'm doing wrong (this bug appeared some days ago when I've did
several changes to programs I compile). Btw, what's the algo of finding
the most main unit that must be initialized first? Maybe there are some
logic problems?

At least compiler could give an error if it cannot decide which unit
to initialize first... It gives such error if units declare usage
of each other in the interface part. But it says nothing if units
declare usage in the implementation part (this is a correct behaviour
I suppose, but then why it doesn't works correctly?).
