Hi, Graeme.

I've got D5 installed under Wine here, and the only thing found when grepping 
for tcriticalsection in the ./Source/Rtl/Win directory is the 
function "SetCriticalSectionSpinCount".

The SyncObjs unit does exist in D5.

~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Borland/Delphi5 $ find . -iname 'syncobj*'

Best regards,
Pete C.
