  CurrencyString: string;
  CurrencyFormat: Byte;
  NegCurrFormat: Byte;
  ThousandSeparator: Char;
  DecimalSeparator: Char;
  CurrencyDecimals: Byte;
  DateSeparator: Char;
  ShortDateFormat: string;

   { Character to be put between date, month and year }
   DateSeparator: char absolute DefaultFormatSettings.DateSeparator;

   { Format used for short date notation }
   ShortDateFormat: string absolute DefaultFormatSettings.ShortDateFormat;
Delphi/Kylix probably can't map a variable to the address of another variable, 
because of that Delphi needs separate implementations of format functions 
with and without FormatSettings parameter.

Use "DefaultFormatSettings.ShortDateFormat" to display the value in gdb.
