See Bart's comment above. :)

I don't understand. If "D7" means Delphi 7, this version is from 2002, so almost 20 years old. If it means Delphi 2007, this is still 14 years old.
I think such old versions cannnot be the benchmark for the development.

Yes Delphi 7.

OK, fair enough. I just tested with the latest Delphi(10.4.4 - Sydney)...same behaviour.

I don't agree. Delphi 7 was one of the last versions before the change from ANSI to UTF16 strings. Because Lazarus uses UTF8 strings it is closer to D7 than to the current version. Furthermore, Delphi is fairly conservative regarding breaking changes, so most of the features of Delphi 7 are still valid today. And Delphi did not introduce significant changes to the VCL (the counterpart of our LCL) since the XE series, most of the changes are in Firemonkey which Lazarus does not support at all. Therefore, D7 is a good basis for a reference version.

It is Delphi 7.
Because thats the only version I have (before that I had Delphi 3 Pro).
Lazarus started out trying to be compatible with Delphi 7.
Bu besides that, anyone with a newer version can test if this behaviour is still present.
If not, then we should change it as well.
(To me, the behaviour feels like a bug.)

Delphi XE 10.3.3 behaves in the same way.
