It seems that the compiler is not appending path information to source 
file name when it is working on .ppu files . When I compile with all 
information from compiler , it is saying that
                x.ppu is found , but ( after x.ppu is found )
only_source_name.pas is NOT found .

For me , it is not related to the first scanned unit , because in my 
large program it is occurring in units specified in any place in Uses 
statement .

In the first compilation when there is no any .ppu or .o files , or
If all of the .ppu and .o files are deleted , such an error is never 
occurring .

Either there is no full path information in .ppu about included source 
file when it is in the interface part or it is ignored for .ppu files . 
These are guesses because up to now I could find which part of the 
compiler is compiling the unit interfaces . I could find starting place 
, but , not exactly flow of compilation lines . It seems that a property 
is performing the compilation but which one I do not know .

Thank you very much .
