I did and found the implementation of FindFirst/Next on Win32 differing
much from the one in rtl/unix/sysutils.pp. The only system error handled
there is ENOMEM, so the error number on "permission denied" is -1 aka

As far as i understand it the function "glob" in
rtl/unix/sysutils.pp:469 is the place where more error handling for this
case should be added. (fpc 2.0.2 release)

Is this assumption correct or am I missing something?

And more: are there other places where handling access rights has to be
handled to stay consistent?
