I did so (to 33355) and the bug persists.

I guess, although I hadn't actually tried to build the whole project previously, 
and even after that "build file" is still not working, which was the original 
source of trouble.

I want to compile the file called sarala_text.pas which uses LCLProc (for utf8 
string procs)

Even directly after building and running the project, which uses 
sarala_text.pas, I still cannot "build file" for sarala_text.pas.

One strange thing I am noticing is that the message window shows:
/Docs/fpc/saralatools/sarala_text.pas(1,1) Fatal: Can't find unit LCLProc used 
by sarala_text

Although the LCLProc uses statement is not until line 12.

Configure build+run file...

tab Options: neither is checked.

tab Build:
- working directory is blank
- build command: $(CompPath) $(EdFile)
- scan for FPC messages and Make messages are both checked
- Macros: lots of stuff.....

tab Run:
- always build before run is checked
- working directory is blank
- run command: $MakeExe($(EdFile))
- Macros: lots of stuff.....

I believe all of these are the defaults, I don't believe I've ever made any 
changes here.

Thanks so much for your help, by the way!
