Can the Lazarus IDE itself actually run on WinCE? I would have
imagined, no.  The IFDEF doesn't really matter, I simply use MSWINDOWS
since forever... :-)  I'll change it if required.

I'll look into it.

A known issue. It also doesn't remember it's position, only size.  I
asked previously how to add File Browser to the list of IDE Windows
(Environment Options | Windows tab), but I didn't get any response.
I've done it before, but that was with code that was built into the
IDE, not with an optional IDE add-on package. Anybody got a clue what
API I can use?
