If it is important then I already tested it after Andrew commit and now 
using it in the fix compiled lhelp application (where it was visible 
before and was a reason of this fix). No problems found. And memory dont 
jump too high as before.

IMO you are using very high restrictions for fpc packages. There must be 
less restrictive rules for fixes that does not touch compiler, rtl and 
fcl or developers will move their packages outside fpc as it is now with 
LNet. Who needs this?
