OK I understand, but this has not caused me troubles before (~ 6
months). Why I did that. I have several Lazarus installations. A
"regular" one installed from :
deb http://www.hu.freepascal.org/lazarus/ lazarus-stable
and some others in my home directory.

Previously I ran Lazarus installation, build from latest source, without
any parameter, and others more "stable" with something like :
startlazarus --pcp=~/.lazarus-stable

But this cause me lots of troubles when running just :
startlazarus --pcp=~/.lazarus

when I believed deleting ~/.lazarus was enough, before I  understand it
use environment file for *regular" lazarus :

TLazarusManager.Run starting
/home/thierrybo/Sys/local/opt/lazarus_FPC_svn/lazarus ...

So I added

--scp=~/.lazarus to avoid this. This used to work until now. I have another build using svn code from 1 month ago, without any problem. My regular installation use also the two identical --pcp and --scp parameters.
