This is crazy, I just wanted to uninstall the 5dposerial package so I
opened the Package/Configure packages dialog, selected the 5dpo
package and clicked Uninstall.
Then after a little while the same stupid message appeared:

componenttreeview.pas(41,18) Fatal: Can't find unit ComponentTreeView
used by ObjectInspector

Why can't it find this when it obviously belongs to Lazarus itself?
It has nothing to do with 5dpo and even so I am now trying to get rid
of 5dpo alltogether....

I have absolutely no idea what to do about that since I have not
touched anything remotely like such a file and it must have been
present before, otherwise I would not have had a working Lazarus,

Note that this is not *my* package at all, it is a package for serial
communications that I first downloaded from SF and since it was too
old (not the most recent) today I got more recent files from SVN.
