It sounds perfectly fine to me. You should also experience much better  
performance with the new heap manager, as the critical section is  
seldom used in normal operation. If you want a program in which this  
scenario is stress tested, you can use http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/trunk/tests/test/theapthread.pp
