First of: I don't know whether non-Shortstrings are supported on embedded
(I haven't played with that target yet). So my following tips are geared
towards ShortString usage.

Which compiler mode are you using? You should use either mode FPC or at
most ObjFPC. Mode Delphi will switch on AnsiString. In any case you should
ensure that you haven't enabled AnsiStrings using $H+ (simply disable the
directive in that case).
Additionally you could declare your String variables explicitly as
ShortString instead of String.
