Dear all,
I am testing Lazarus 1.4RC2 r FPC 2.6.4 i386-win32-win32/win64

I got a problem with Ttreeview.
I have a project in which I use a TTreeView with checkboxes. It worked 
with laz 1.2 fixes branch.
I tested a simple project with 1 form, 1 imagelist and 1 ttreeview 
filled with few items whose state index is set to 0.
The stateimages property is set to imagelist1 that is filled on form 
creation with the following routine found on lazarus forum:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
     aSize: TSize;
     aBMP: TBitmap;
     aDetails: TThemedElementDetails;
     aRect: TRect;
   with aBMP do
       SetSize(aSize.cx, aSize.cy);
       Canvas.FillRect(0,0, Width,Height);
   aRect:=Rect(0, 0, aSize.cx, aSize.cy);
   ThemeServices.DrawElement(aBMP.Canvas.Handle, aDetails, aRect, nil);
   ImageList1.Add(aBMP, nil);
   aBMP.Canvas.FillRect(0,0, Width,Height);;
   ThemeServices.DrawElement(aBMP.Canvas.Handle, aDetails, aRect, nil);
   ImageList1.Add(aBMP, nil);

Starting the project I got a ttreeview with unchecked boxes.
Here the code for click on tree:

procedure TForm1.TreeView1Click(Sender: TObject);
   i: integer;
   i:= TreeView1.Selected.Level;

When I click on the checkbox of any treeview node I got a sigsegv error 

function TTreeNode.GetLevel: Integer;
// root is on level 0
   ANode: TTreeNode;
   Result := 0;
   ANode := Parent;		<----
   while Assigned(ANode) do
     ANode := ANode.Parent;

> Choose your CPU, OS, distro and then the "Lazarus 1.4RC1" directory.

>                 On 64bit it is recommended to use the 32bit IDE.

>                 LCL only 32bit, non LCL apps can be 64bit.
> == Why should everybody (including you) test the release candidate? ==
> In the past weeks the Lazarus team has stabilized the 1.4 fixes branch. The resulting 1.4RC1 is now stable enough to be used by any one for test purposes.
> However many of the fixes and new features that where committed since the release of 1.2 required changes to the code of existing features too. While we have tested those ourself, there may still be problems that only occur with very specific configurations or one project in a million.
> Yes, it may be that you are the only person with a project, that will not work in the new IDE. So if you do not test, we can not fix it.
> Please do not wait for the final release, in order to test. It may be too late. Once the release is out we will have to be more selective about which fixes can be merged for further 1.4.x releases. So it may be, that we can not merge the fix you require. And then you will miss out on all the new features.
> == How to test ==
> Download and install the 1.4RC1.
> - On Windows you can install as a 2ndary install, that will not affect your current install:
>    http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Multiple_Lazarus#Installation_of_multiple_Lazarus
> - On other platforms, if you install to a new location you need to use --primary-config-path
> In either case you should make backups. (including your primary config)
> Open your project in the current Lazarus (1.2.6), and use "Publish Project" from the project menu. This creates a clean copy of your project.
> You can then open that copy in the RC1. Please test:
> - If you can edit forms in the designer
>     - rename components / change properties in Object inspector / Add new events
>     - Add components to form / Move components on form
>     - Frames, if you use them
> - If you can navigate the source code (e.g. jump to implementation)
> - Auto completion in source code
> - Compile, debug and run
> - Anything else you use in your daily work
