Thanks. The bug reports I read (pointed to by Luca) suggested that it
was the version of libc6 on the system which indicated the problem
would occur, but the suggestion was that it has to be the version in
testing (2.21, I think). You have exactly the same version as I do,
which is what I would expect, LMDE is explicitly said to be based on
Jessie. I think it's time to put a vanilla Jessie in a VM and set up
Lazarus and FPC in that (takes a day or so thanks to this @#$%^*&
satellite internet!) - unless someone else surprises me and comes up
with a fix. I recall it being some kind of problem with a much earlier
version of LMDE and Lazarus/FPC which drove me from Mint to Debian in
the first place. I don't know how they do it... :(
