Thanks for the input. The build which failed totally was fpc 3.0.4
with lazarus trunk. The two trunks together did at least succeed in
building a version of lazarus which runs. I only did the further test
in response to Juha's posting. For now, I'm just sticking with my
version of lazarus built in a Mint Debian VM, it seems to exhibit no
problems, at least none that I have seen so far.
