Probably related to your choice of UCS-2 - I don't really know the specific
issues you have, so it is hard to tell. I can say that I have been using
resource strings (with unicode text) for ages, but fpGUI and my projects
use UTF-8 internally, which obviously works around (mostly) the "lack of
Unicode support in FPC" because UTF-8 text can be treated as a byte array.

I would love this one too.  What I didn't know is that we take a penalty
for using local classdefs to get access to protected methods.
