[fpc-pascal] FileGetAttr fails on TrueCrypt partition

g: is the XP system volume. x: is the truecrypted NTFS partition. No
problem to set / get / show file attributes with Win32 GUI on both
volumes. Same with attrib.exe on console.

sysutils.FileGetAttr(g:\*) is fine, as well, but FileGetAttr(x:\*)
returns -1 as an error.

After copying a file from x: to g:, its attributes are - surprise - ok
again. Even bigger surprise: After re-copying from g: to x:,
FileGetAttr(x:\...) delivers the same correct result as on g:

Any idea?
