OK, I see :) Do you remember how this veryyyy long thread starts ?

A: array of MyArray;

Entering the doom again... Next question could be why:

p1: TObject;
p2: TObject;

Why I get an AV if accesing p2 ? Because the object has been freed...
So why is not p2 = nil as p1 ?

This kind of messages will end up or in a master class of pointers for
dummies or a lot of developers dropping the list for days.

I had proposed the "solution" that I think is easy to understand what
happends behind the scenes or maybe I wrongly choose the moment of hit
reply :(

Best regards,
