well eff me!! (see attachment) i would never have thought of adding that 
package... it actually was not installed in this lazarus although i have had it 
installed in the past... i guess i left it out the last time i reinstalled 
because i hadn't seen any benefit and simply hadn't gotten to it on my TODO list 
to see what it could offer me...

yeah, i don't do bigide as was mentioned in the juha's previous message... i 
build from trunk in the repository using the following in my build script...

make OPT="-gl -gh -dHEAPTRC_WINDOW" lazbuild lcl basecomponents starter 
bigidecomponents lhelp
lazbuild.exe --build-ide="-gl -gh -dHEAPTRC_WINDOW" --build-mode="debug ide"

generally speaking, my miscellaneousoptions.xml is used but my script has the 
ability of disabling it by renaming it so it isn't found... in this case, it is 
used and i don't recall the testing that was being done before where i needed to 
be able to disable miscellaneousoptions.xml... probably when trying to work with 
one of the docking manager things which i don't use any more for various reasons...
