I agree with you. I just followed blindly the myriad of examples which 
surround with a try..finally the statements after a TIniFile.Create, to 
ensure that TIniFile.Free is executed, forgetting that in a GUI 
application this is not the proper way to do it.
With a try..except any error in between would be properly handled, and 
Free may be called safely as required.
