Well as usual, I can't exactly reproduce this.  I put the offending file 
back into the package and tried to force the crash but it wouldn't.  So 
I thought I'd go back to the CBT1 package that it originally happened 
with and discovered something different.

I have a package called "cbtpack" with a version set to 1.0 in 

I have another called "cbtpack" with a version set to 2.0 in 

I uninstalled the 2.0 package, rebuilt lazarus, closed and restarted.  I 
then compiled clean and installed the 1.0 package, rebuilt and 
restarted.  No problems.

So, now I want to go back to the 2.0 package so I uninstall 1.0, rebuilt 
lazarus and restarted.  I open the 2.0 package, compile clean and 
install, rebuild Lazarus no problem.

Restart Lazarus and I get a messagebox "Package cbtpack 1.0" unit name 
"cbtobjects" unit not found "cbtobjects".

cbtpack 1.0 doesn't contain cbtobjects, that was new in 2.0.  The 
console output from Lazarus is useless and doesn't reference the error.

The package graph tree after the error shows that cbtpack 1.0 is 
installed, and all of the 1.0 package components are in the palette.
