Although the patch is pretty simple and has been tested both in Delphi 
and fpc, after thinking some time, i realized that this fix has the 
potential to uncover another bugs. Given that will have little time to 
test that' dangerous. Moreover, the workaround in LCL has little impact 
on performance and we can live with it for more time.

So, please reconsider my request. Let's test it more through 2.5.1 cycle.

@Joost: i did not noticed the patch being applied to trunk yet. Thanks 
for the trust.
