And as a consequence compilation in Delphi fails if a negative value
is supplied to a function that takes a TConvType as a parameter, but
also code like this will not raise an exception Delphi, while it does
in Fpc:

  L: Integer;
  writeln('ConvTypeToDescription(L)=',ConvTypeToDescription(L));  //
prints [$0000FFFF] in D7, EAccessViolation in fpc
