Sorry to disappoint your hopes, but after copying the Delphi sources to
c:\temp\lazarus_test_memo (no, temp does not contain any other pascal
sources, and C: only contains the fpc/lazarus binaries in different
subdirectories), I get the same results: issue with .res file and after
commenting out the $R *.res directive, running the application triggers an

... and this time I managed to upload the source successfully :-P

As I explained, I suppose that for some reason, the LFM files were not
created that time. I can't be sure because the directory where this
happened has been emptied and recreated numerous times since, but this is
the best explanation I can suggest. So this LFM problem would be a sporadic
and probably unrelated issue. I only mentioned it because my supposition
could be wrong and maybe telling this could help you find where the main
problem comes from.
