Also delphi handles things strange. The following code is from
webtbf/tw3930a.pp. The code looks correct, but delphi fails with
"Incompatible types: 'TMyStringList' and 'TStringList'". That makes
typed classes not very usefull unless you override all constructors.
TMyStringList = type TStringlist;
list : TMyStringList;
