This might be due to a problem with 
the compilation mode :
do some of your units have {$mode xxx}
set ?

   I am not sure that this modes are saved and resotred correctly
when the program switches from one unit to another ...
Even though I thought that I fixed that bug not long ago....
Maybe I forgot to commit the  fix....
