There are a few different errors/failures in the log. I started out by
looking into -

After some trial and error, I landed on the first failing statement in

    AssertEquals(0, R.ScaleAround0(2).Width);

where R is a Rectangle(10, 20, 0, 50), i.e., Width = 0 and Height = 50.

ScaleAround0() returns a record of type TRectangle.

    function TRectangle.ScaleAround0(const Factor: Single): TRectangle;
      ResultRight, ResultTop: Integer;
      if Width > 0 then
        Result.Left   := Floor(Left * Factor);
        ResultRight := Ceil(Right * Factor);
        Result.Width  := ResultRight - Result.Left;
      end else
        Result.Width  := Width;
        Result.Left   := Left;

      if Height > 0 then
        Result.Bottom := Floor(Bottom * Factor);
        ResultTop   := Ceil(Top * Factor);
        Result.Height := ResultTop - Result.Bottom;
      end else
        Result.Height := Height;
        Result.Bottom := Bottom;

After parsing the function, the AssertEquals() makes sense.

At this point, I suspect it's a compiler issue. I've created a
reproducer (attached) that highlights the problem and behaves
differently on arm64 and x86.

Note: I am not at all familiar with Pascal. Input from somebody more
familiar with the language ecosystem will be greatly appreciated.
