If there is a minor error in fpc, may be, it is a good idea to bypass it in the project rather than correcting it and making inofficial fpcs every month.

Simply. Just publish lazarus-20020521.tar.bz2 on a site (I can do this as soon as I take 2nd computer). Then, might be, lazarus-20020615 + patch or so on.

Sorry. I can not. This error is during loading xpm.

Course. The problem is: there are too many unexpected units (lcltypes and other *types), which are not only have no analogs in vcl/clx, but even are not installed
in /usr/[local/]lib/lazarus (I don't use /usr/local at all, on my linux computer (it is my, but not connected to internet or other network at all) /usr/local is
symlink to /usr :) )
Besides,. let's imagine, I have dfm/xfm, and I have to translate it to lcl. It is not difficult to do it manually, but there is a problem to link this pas+lfm to
the project and then edit this form. I couldn't do it simply.
