Yes I couldn't get it to compile until I copied over the .ppu to the
./lcl/units/gtk/ directory. The Makefile didn't seem to find them. I
looked at the directions in the FAQ and everything was okay, so I
thought I'd try copying the .ppus and it worked.....

Are events working ? I tried to setup a FormShow event and it didn't
seem to work....

Form editing sounds interesting. There are lots of todos in
customformeditor.pas, the code looks pretty complicated. I'll give it a
go though.

Is this where I'd start looking ?

....Also is there a unit test suite set up ???
