No it's not nested. I have a .pas file with an interface section, next a
couple of .inc files fill in the implementation section. Maybe the
compiler is confused from that? Normally this should not be the case
(except there is a bug). Maybe you forgot a "end;" or "begin" somewhere
and now the compiler treats it as a nested procedure. Try to minimize
your program as good as possible so that you should find the spot which
triggers this. 

Yup! If found a wrong begin/end. Everything works now...
