I'm the only one of those 4 not involved in Lazarus. ;-) On the other 
hand, I wasn't involved in the base RTL codepage handling implementation 
for Windows at all, i.e. it isn't like that I implemented something in a 
way only working correctly on my configuration or so.

OK. Please, test it also the way I suggested earlier, i.e. from within 
Lazarus by pretending that it's the compiler (Mattias already wrote that 
he ran the program from command line, but I'd like to make sure that 
there's no difference triggered by Lazarus when running the compiler 
from it).
