Are you sure that -gv in windows has any effect?
I think, that valgrind can be used only in unix systems. Isn't -gv
option silently ignored in windows?

But compiling by kylix compiler, i get the same results as by fpc with
-gv option in linux.
This is the reason why I start to hunt where is my program to slow if
compiled by fpc against kylix.
