Hi Darius,

I remeber strugling throug that as well, shortly after the zutils unit
was dumped (post FPC 2.0.2 release).  The dzlib unit I use in tiOPF
had to change.  I remember the memory functions, but will have to
check what everything I changed to get dzlib to work again.  It might
be able to shed some light on your problem.

Will get back to you on this...
