Thanks, Mattias. I tried renaming .lazarus and then ran lazarus up 
again, but no change in the behaviour. Let me show you the sort of 
thing I see, screenshot attached. Any time I click a pulldown menu, 
the source window disappears, and as you will see, the pulldown menus 
stay there.

P.S. Didn't know about the 100 KB size triggering a moderator review. 
OK, the .png is here.
