[fpc-devel] current_settings

I found problems with some settings, obtained from current_settings at 
program start (command line processing...). At that time no 
(module/parser) object exists, that could hold *current* settings. 
Instead some of the members of TSettings should  be read only from 
init_settings, like disabledircache, cs_link_on_target...

Can somebody review the members of globals.TSettings, for which of them 
are really for change during compilation?

The offending elements can be found by running the current version of 
the NoGlobals branch, with any source file - all errors occur before a 
source file is selected for compilation.

In a future compiler version TSettings should be updated, to exclude 
members that should not be subject to local changes. This change may 
deserve changes to the ppu file writer as well?
