Thanks. I did try to find it but am lost up till now. regarding
Thorsten's message I assume it is a member function to some class (e.g.
TObject), but my usual means to find such functions don't show it to me.

I do believe that you are right. Thorsten's hint that the compiler moves
the information in the RTTI might point into the the correct direction,
but up I still need to find out what the exactly RTTI contains and how
to extract it from there.
