I'm using FPC 2.1.1!   I found when the problem occurs.  When a form
is loaded or closed, it's state is saved.  This is handled by the
tiOPF framework.  The tiOPF framework uses TRegINIFile for storing
that State information.  I thought it would use a .ini file as
supplied by tiOPF, instead of a hard-coded reg.xml file as defined in

If I can't get this sorted in FPC, maybe I should change tiOPF to
rather use the TINIFile class under Linux instead.  At least that will
mean anybody using tiOPF with FPC 2.0.4 will also be able to save
their Forms State information, where currently they can't.
