Oops, sorry - it should and indeed does so (I forgot about this default
parameter at first while testing the current behaviour of FPC and its
compatibility to TP/BP after seeing Mark's post and I suspect that the
same might have happened to Mark). :-( In this context, the error report
is probably not appropriate/necessary. Sorry to Mark for misleading him.
