Absolute isn't the cause. Looking at the assembler code created by fpc I
figured out that when DefaultFormatSettings is passed to a routine as a
register it is correctly loaded in a register as
TC_SYSUTILS_DEFAULTFORMATSETTINGS at GOT(%EBX) while when it is pushed on the
stack because of too many params it is pushed as

I'll create a bug report.
