There is still mixing of classes and interfaces going on.

Rule of thumb is that unless you are _VERY_ sure about what you are doing,
create the class directly to an interface typed variable, and keep in
interface typed variables.

The way how Tony passes owner is wrong and that messes up reference

If in the test he would do  TMyclass.Create(Tsomeclass.create); it probably
would be ok.
