Hello, James!

That's exactly what I meant: I'm not sure if fpc is able to keep track of the 
destruction of the strings in case of AnsiString. You might check it by 
displaying the total free memory before and after the deallocation of 
tmpStrings. But one of the developers might answer this question in a few 
seconds, wheras I would need half an hour .. how urgent is hsi question?
