all fixed

Perhaps, because the combobox is disabled.
Does your theme not show, that it is disabled?

The identifier completion (Ctrl-Space) is currently only a workaround. It does show the properties of the current form.
The identifier completion is a very complex task. But I'm sure I can get something similar in the next two weeks...

added to my wishlist.

Works fine for me.
The question is, does the middle mouse button come to synedit, or is the primary selection out of order.
What happens, if you select some text in the source editor and do a mid-mouse click?

xpm. But the TImage relies on TGraphic, which is currently only a gtk-specific workaround. When I finished the nice-to-have source editor functions, I will improve that. I think, the LCL should handle bmp, xpm and ico format. Hopefully I will manage to get it compatible enough, to use all the Delphi graphic units. Can't say, when it will be available. Hopefully in two months.

added to my bug list.

That's what I like of open source. Users will test for bugs, before yourself runs into them. Plz go on.
I think, it is nice of you, to collect bugs in one mail, instead of flooding the list. :)
Although sometimes you mix up IDE bugs and LCL questions. e.g. the TImage support. I think, it helps other users to search for and quicklook if you split them.
