[fpc-pascal]Cycle problem in Win32

Not sure about your other problems but the comparison problem between
ppc386.exe and ppc3 isn't the problem. I get this often when doing win32 or
go32v2 makes (I'm running win9x)... it's something to do with a few bytes of
uninitialised memory. 

I've fixed it for automatic snapshot makes by replacing the diff.exe &
cmp.exe versions you get in the win32 or go32v2 utilities by my own pascal
program that doesn't stop when the files are slightly different, but if you
do it manually just ignore it! 

By the way re your problem the go32v2 and win32 v10 and v11 snapshots
(compiler, rtl, ide) have been working every day fine for last 2 weeks or
so, with latest sources, starting with the go32v2 and win32 v1.0.10
