Are there any other cases where this issue may be significant ? If no, I'll mark this wiki page clearly as "only for FPC earlier than 2004-12-28" (to-be-removed when 2.0 comes in), else I will update it.

already started by Vincent with that question)
I haven't tested it, but I have this hunch.
Ansistrings (not constant) also require implicit try finally.
If you use ansi strings only in a seldom used if-branch in a procedure, you could extract the procedure too, just like you did for the resource string.
for example: If (i>0) then 'do something but not with ansistrings else writeln('Invalid value: '+IntToStr(i));
I suspected that every type that needs to be initialized/finalized creates such try...finally block, but didn't have time to check. But I checked it now. OK, page in wiki is changed, and demo program there is changed.
