I have no idea what you mean by this statement...
What is LXDE and how do I test Lazarus for LXDE?

That happened to be the case since I decided I should get me a more
powerful computer so I installed the latest Mint - Mate in a virtual
machine on my laptop.
In this environment the gtk2 is still selected but the form sizing
