There was an issue that has been fixed for Lazarus 2.4 (i.e. in 2.3).
It is possible that the fix wasn't backported for some reason.

Though currently we have reports  that there may be individual cases 
were the problem persists in 2.3.
However despite lots of testing, this has not been reproducible. So the 
status is unknown.

You can set bookmarks using
    shift-ctrl-1  .. 0
and go to them
    ctrl-1  .. 0

Assuming your OS/Desktop has no shortcuts on those combos.
If there is a conflict, you can change the Desktop, or Lazarus.
