As observed in

dim as zstring ptr  zptr = @"Hi"
dim as string  s = *zptr         '' "Hi"
dim as integer i = *zptr         '' asc("H")
print i, s, z10                  '' 72, Hi, Hi

It could be because of string indexing; there were quite some special cases in fbc treating z/wstring pointer deref's specially because of that, treating such expressions as wchar/char integers in some places but strings in others. So for example, zstringptr[0] is treated the same as (*zstringptr)[0] in some contexts.
