Also could you please verify that $H+ isn't causing problems? The string literal 'Hello World' is a short string but "String" is an AnsiString so that may influence the results you're expecting.  However  even without the operator I don't know how to delineate between the explicit cast vs the non-explicit cast.

	Writeln(Test('Hello World'));
	Writeln(Test(String('Hello World')));

These both appear to be equal as far as is_better_candidate is concerned.
