The *file://* part looks suspicious. Otherwise it is the default
Lazarus config directory in your Unix/Linux home directory.

I don't have any problems with the latest trunk, including r46345.
So, it is not a bug in Lazarus but some kind of local configuration problem.
Try to clean your system. Remove the local config (after making a
backup maybe), make sure there are no other Lazarus versions in search
path, "make clean" etc.
