[fpc-devel] MacOS/dwarf: Was there any change to how/when relocation info is included.

It appears with 3.2.2  the address of a global var in dwarf already 
contains the relocation.
Since fpdebug, does not retrieve any relocation info from lldb, it does 
not adjust any addresses.

But with 3.3.1 it seems different.


The test app has 2 global vars.
They can be inspected if compiled with 3.2.2.

But compile with 3.3.1 and fpdebug send the following to  lldb:
   memory read --force --size 1 --format x --count 4 1008
   memory read --force --size 1 --format x --count 4 1012
Looks like the offset within the exe, without relocation.

Was there an intentional change to introduce this?
