BDE (under any OS) freaks out if the disk space remaining is exactly
divisible by 4. Eg. 20 GB free. Have a look for 'FixBDE4GbBug.pas' on
Google, by a guy called Reinaldo Roberto Yañez Arrey (!). All you need to
do is add this unit to your project, and it uses its own version of
'GetDiskFreeSpace' which actually works...
