Thanks José & Flávio,

Sounds like a good plan, though I liked the beauty/simplicity of dealing
with records - unless you forget that ansistrings also have pointers ;)
I had completely forgotten about them and assumed the compiler would
deal with them behind the scenes. Obviously it doesn't.

I'll give it a go and get back to the list if I hit more troubles.

All, any advice/tricks on debugging? I think I'll try setting up Lazarus
in an Ubuntu VM to see how that works in any case. Maybe that works...
