That you did not reply to the suggestions I made in my previous  
message. Please say what you did and what happened, even if it didn't  
work. It's not nice to spend time on trying to help someone, if that  
person then simply ignores what you write and replies with something  
completely different.

The EABI requires that the stack is always aligned to 8 bytes on entry/ 
exit of subroutines, and you probably mess up the alignment with the  
manually inserted return instruction.

Also, make sure that you compiled an EABI cross-compiler (ensure that - 
dFPC_ARMEL is part of the OPT setting of the "make" invocation used to  
compile FPC).
