The 1.0.x compiler allocated expection handling blocks in the heap that could reduce the
amount of growing of ansistrings. The 1.1 development compiler should be more efficient in
those cases.

But merging is always dependent on other blocks that allocated in your program, those
blocks can be allocated also implicitly by calling some rtl or other routines
