Well, I was always doing Self.SetName in these cases... (as an example
here). Same thing for functions implemented in different units (was
hapening): unit1.ProcedureInUnit and unit2.ProcedureInUnit. So it was
obivious for me since local var always have priority.

I was seeing it exactly as the 'with .. do' block.

But this is ok, I'll work the FPC way. I'm not sure this (FPC) will
change anyway :)

Thank you.
