I don't use Lazarus  - ironically, I ran into this bug while
trying to recompile a program that interfaces FPC with NEdit.
It doesn't use Lazarus or GTK, but it uses popen(F, 'ppc386 -iV', 'R') 
to check the compiler version. As a temporary workaround, I can use 
oldlinux.popen() or shell('ppc386 -iV > version.txt') and read the 
result from there.

Thanks a bunch for your help - I would never have guessed
the timezone file had anything to do with opening a pipe!
