And that is correct: a private field is hidden to the implementation inside a class. You are using it as a public field. The compiler told you so... Not a bug.
Belongs on the support forums.

Of course, this is a bug. The private field is hidden for implementation inside a UNIT, used in a UNIT, but the compiler erroneously reports that the field is never used.
