It seems like some Winsock1 vs Winsock2 issue to me.
If you use unit "winsock" you're linking to winsock1 (which is old and
deprecated). Sadly noone in FPC bothered to change it to winsock2. There
are many winsock2 units out there so you might try to use those and see
if it happens too.
Windows is full of surprises when it comes to these things. There are
even "reintroduced" bugs just to keep backwards compatibility because
they f*cked up.

If you figure this out, can you let me know please? It's always a good
idea to know possible bugtraps.
