Hello, FPC developers' list

Is this supposed to be so? Why not to create an unicode version with 
PWideChar arguments and do as in other places {$ifdef Unicode} ?

        Res := FindResource(HInstance, PChar('MAINICON'), RT_GROUP_ICON);


    I guess with my weak experience. the problem about RT_GROUP_ICON it
    is PWideChar passed as parameter  PChar, widestring manager here
    worked to convert not a real string, RT_GROUP_ICON it is an Integer
    typecasted as PWideChar in WinCE.

Reported as bug
