Run diff (e.g. kdiff3) on the old and new configuration files. Report back.

I think that what you didn't tell us is exactly how you are accessing 
Lazarus: for example, I see a couple of minor issues when tunnelling X 
over ssh that I don't see over VNC, and in the general case VNC has its 
own problems and instabilities. Even if you're running locally (i.e. 
using the machine's own screen/keyboard/mouse) the window manager (AKA 
desktop) can influence things.
