Oh - sorry - forgot that vital information. Was before my first coffee  
in the morning...

Zitat von Mattias Gaertner via Lazarus <lazarus at lists.lazarus-ide.org>:

>> When I resize or move a form in the designer and click on a component

Debian Linux x64, Cinnamon, GTK2, Anchordocking
Lazarus SVN-Revision 53015
FPC 3.0 fixes branch, SVN-Revision 34552

> It works here.

Just retested - happens all the time, new project, reopened old  
project - always the same.

Problem disappears when switching to QT - so it seems to be a problem  
in GTK2. Unfortunatly no Windows around, so can not test there.
I switched my IDE to QT now - but it still might be worth a look to  
hunt down the problem.
