Are you aware, that there two gtk versions? 1.2 and 2.
The 1.2 is more stable and therefore the default under lazarus.

I heard that FC8 no longer supports gtk1.2.
You can build the gtk2 lazarus:

Download lazarus from svn or tgz. For example:


You should now have the lazarus sources.
Now build the gtk2 IDE:
cd lazarus
export LCL_PLATFORM=gtk2; make clean all bigide
