1) All uninitialized global data is always zeroed out at startup,
   as fas as I know.

2) FPC supports (in Delphi mode) Initialized variables.
   Declare your variables as

  V : Boolean = False;

this way they are initialized correctly at program startup.

If you don't want to use Delphi mode, you can use

  V : Boolean = False;

Which acts as a initialized variable.
