[lazarus] Compile freezes up ??

Yes,  on 9/21 1.0.7 was declared the required compiler on account of 
certain bug fixes which were needed for proper Form streaming, and other 
misc. problems in the 1.0.6 compiler. So there is a new 1.0.7 rpm you 
can get from the lazarus ftp site, or you can always use the 1.0.7 
nightly, or the 1_0_0 fixes branch from fpc cvs(its probably easiest to 
get the rpm or nightlies unless you've done it from cvs before). Up 
until now lazarus was compiling fine uner 1.0.6, but there were problems 
in form streaming on acount of a buffer problem, but I guess now it is 
required to compile as well. If you still have issues after upgrading 
your compiler, then we can start worrying about verbosity & debugging. 
If it IS a compiler issue, on account of the other issues it'll be 
easiest if when this problem arrises we just tell people to get a newer 
compiler then too try and track it down and make a work around for it.
