I wrote in http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.2.0_release_notes:
  Delphi converter is more robust and does not abort any more for
parsing or other errors.
I am not sure if that is true yet but it is a goal.

Please test the converter are report errors where the conversion gets
interrupted by itself, and also other errors in the current primitive
"Primitive  conversion" means it only replaces, adds and removes
units, types, properties and functions, and calculates some offsets,
but does not do any deeper code analysis.
The existing conversions should work quite well though.

I fixed this :
The GUI for missing units was partly broken.

Even when the conversion succeeds without errors, it does not mean the
program would run or work, but that is a very different issue.
Fully automatic conversion, especially for cross-platform, will be
quite impossible also in future.
