this was probably the jump-to section, which keeps track of where you well, 
jumped to within a file. AFAIK Multiple entries here is not an issue, and 
should be considered normal.

well. This certainly sounds like a problem. Did you happen to keep the file? 
It would help for a reference to track this problem down.

hehe.. this is not a bug. this is a feature.. No, really. Every project file 
keeps track of every file you open while in it. I am sure your thinking - 
WHY?! Basically so that next time you open it lazarus can open up to them 
same spot in the file as when you last had it opened. I use this feature all 
the time in that I have a test project open in which I will edit Lazarus 
sources. Next time I open up they are remembered and open up right to the 
same line, so as I am working, testing, recompiling lazarus, reopening etc 
etc.. I am always in the same spot as I was last time. This not the problem 
either as Mattias was telling me that his project file has like a 1000 
entries w/out any corruption in site(not that it couldn't be caused by 
something in this area though). Fact is you use this feature too even when 
you don't realize it. Actually, I thought this was the problem too till I 
started to dig through sources to try and fix it. Well. Now ya' know.
