You can start lazarus as normal user instead of root.

X errors typically means memory corruption, which typically is caused
a) uncommon libraries
b) you had bad luck and got a buggy lazarus snapshot
c) hardware

Try another theme, try rebooting (to make sure you have no pending
library updates), try another lazarus version, try another fpc version,
try another window manager, etc.
