Whoops, not that easy. It appears that 
does not create new section in current_asmdata.asmlists[al_const] and 
therefore it
depends on the state in which that asmlist was left by the previously 
executed code. Hence, compiling a unit that does not have threadvars but 
has resourcestrings ends up in an IE.

Attached a corrected patch. The section prefix 'RESSTRTABLE' is my wild 
guess, so it may need to be changed.
