Did you try with adding tf_dwarf_relative_addresses to the win32  
target flags? The binutils for Linux do not follow the dwarf standard  
(expecting absolute addresses in some places where the dwarf standard  
says that you should use relative offsets), but since Linux support  
was implemented first that's also the default in FPC.

Putting absolute addresses in places where relative offsets are  
expected certainly will result in invalid offsets.
