[lazarus] Corrupted form

Mmm... well here's the entire application:

It's an older copy (due to corruption I've taken to keeping 3 days worth
of backups).  This particular copy has a corrupted MainMenu control on
main form (name is corrupted).  The app still builds, even though
procedures reference the incorrect name, but when you fire an event that
would use it, it crashes.

The more labels I throw on a form the more likely it is to happen (I
tossed some extra on this test download to make it more likely), and it
only seems to happen about every 10 - 20 saves maybe.  I pruned back my
labels last night and started creating several at runtime and it quit
corrupting the SaveDialog1 I had, but then it corrupted the component
name of one of my popup menus on the form.

Anyway, it's fairly consistently happening (during any 4 hours of
programming) but I can't tell you any one thing to do to trigger it.
