Just ran test program on Linux x64 before and after applying the patch
in 19610.
Before: 5 test groups failed (all with StrictDelimiter:=true), including
the test that write out strings to delimitedtext, reads them back in and
compares them. In other words: saving strings to file and reading back
can be unreliable.

After: all tests passed (and behaviour is the same as Delphi).

Also added draft text for

I think this patch is quite ready to be committed (patch, test suite
test - confirmed with various Delphi versions, positive test results,
change notice)... if Marco is too busy, perhaps somebody else could
