I said I _think_ it _might_ be caused by the Crt unit. Just running the
sample program three times with and three times without using crt is no
proof of anything.

I'm not comparing the CRT unit with Delphi but the final program output.
Else my comparisons with C / Java console output would have been even more
ridiculous (they don't have a CRT either). Apart from that the CRT unit is
part of the FPC rtl nevertheless. Just saying "it's the big bad CRT which
never works anywhere as expected" doesn't make my FPC program run better

Always assuming that it is not the purpose of the crt unit to mess
everything up.

I'll have a look at it.

Btw, what's API 2 ?
