I can confirm that there is no problem if the compiler version is rolled back to 3.0.4.
I was unable to reproduce the issue on my Linux VM (fresh checkout of lazarus trunk, fpc 3.2.0).

In that case one of us is "doing it wrong". I was using a recently-built 3.2.0 (after I realised that my fpc binary was wrong) and had got a fresh Lazarus trunk from svn. There's definitely a problem in there, and even if it's only expressing itself on my system (due to my particular filesystem layout, or my root/user split) the real issue is that there's not enough diagnostics in the output to show what's going wrong and why.

Pet hate: people who boast about the size and sophistication of their computer.
