This is a well documented limitation of Borland Pascal. I have lost the
original reference to this but the solution from Borland was to use an
expression that would create a temporary variable. Using parentheses can
force the creation of a temporary variable.

This is more a design limitation than a bug. All the versions of Borland
(Turbo) Pascal that used the FPU have this limitation. Once you know it
is there it is easy to avoid.
