Results so far - crash when testing mlpe.pas unit:

Last  line  seems  to  be  corrupted (compiler warning mixed with line
numbers), its correct form should be:

FPC   2.4.0rc1  was  used  (built  from  source  with  options  you've
specified).  Random  nature of this bug is confirmed - it appears with
probability 20-40%.

Steps to reproduce it:
1. download http://www.alglib.net/share/fpc-crash.zip
2. unpack somewhere (looks like that place does not matters)
3. cd into the "fpc-O-" directory
4.  edit  "check"  script.  It assumes that FPC compiler is located in
/ALGLIB/fpc_src/fpc-2.4.0rc1/compiler/ppcx64,   point   it   to   your
5. Set +x permissions for "check" and "cyc" scripts
6.  execute "cyc" script. This script will try to call "check fpc mlpe
-O-"  several  times  until  crash occurs. After 1-2 passes it occurs,
script terminates. You can find compiler log in log.txt

If  you  find  it  difficult to reproduce on your system, I may try to
find another example (it is only one unit, but there are several units
which sometimes crash when compiling)

> Our tests are very simple:
> a) their file names have to start with "t" and the extension has to be
> ".pp"

I  think  that  I'll  write  small  script  which renames ALGLIB units
according  to  your  conventions.  They  have  very  regular structure
(because  they  are  automatically generated) so simple regexp will do
the work.

One   more  question - ALGLIB takes about 3-6 minutes to make one pass
through full set of tests.  Is it fast enough for your framework?
