Perhaps somewhere a new "type" section begins between the declaration of 
the pointer ("Foo = ^Bar") and the declaration of the real type ("Bar = 
XYZ")? This could easily be the case when includes are used and those 
aren't clean ^^ (e.g. packages\sqlite\src\sqlite.inc had a "end." and 
the units where it was included as well - there was no error though, 
because the next instruction after the include in the units was "end." 
as well)
