[fpc-devel] encoding of class in dwarf

a class "type TFoo = class .... end;" is encoded as pointer (needed to 
be able to do Foo1=Foo2)

Sometimes it is a pointer to  DW_TAG_structure_type and other times to 
The latter is what I would expect.

I Have not yet worked out the details when it happens. (Might even be 
that I used different fpc version).

Just asking first, maybe someone knows if there is a reason.
