Well for starters, on first start, I get an oversized Object inspector.
Meaning: The object inspector (not docked) is more (maybe 100 to 200 
more) than 1680 pixel in width (1680 = width of my screen)

This is without the above package added, just added anchordocking
Win32 / Vista / 32 bit

What I did:
- checkout branch
- copy Qt4Pas5.dll / into folder
- copy my (win32, not QT / no anchordocking) lazarus.exe into folder
- point lazarus.cfg to new empty primary config path
- start IDE
- set fpc (2.6.4), gdb, ...
- recompile
- launch

And the OI window was that massivly wide.
I have a desktop spanning 2 screens, left screen at -1680 to -1, right 
at 0 to 1679.

After closing IDE, from anchordocking.xml
       <Item2 Name="ObjectInspectorDlg" Type="Control">
         <Bounds Left="-181" Top="212" Width="1910" Height="550">
             <Rect Right="1680" Bottom="1050"/>

Strange though on next start the OI is still that wide, but its left is 
adjusted to the screen (at x=0)
