Usually, me neither.

But I often use open arrays that can grow. Although open arrays are
pointers that use heap, they are supposed to be liberated when the
object is removed from stack, but in fpc 2.6.4 didn't properly. and
3.0.0 I have found strange behaviors and errors if I don't call a

Nevertheless, I stick on my idea that even if objects have virtual
