-gw3 should only be used to test the compiler's DWARF3 output at this  
point. Changing an IDE based on that is not useful because -gw3 itself  
is not stable (so you may have to change the IDE again in the future,  
or add workarounds for bugs that will never make it to a released FPC  
version resulting unnecessary bulky code).
