And so were we experiencing it.  :-)

Oh I don't argue that and yes I have reported many bugs already! Even
fixed a few. I think all the LCL developers have done an amazing job
so far. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to even out all
the widget set differences and get a common set of functionality in
the LCL - _plus_ make it as Delphi compatible as possible. That is no
small task!  I think the design choice to use native widget sets was a
very ambitious one. Not realizing how different widget sets can be and
that maybe implementing their own Lazarus widget set would have been a
much easier and quicker task. Just see how much I have accomplished in
only 6 weeks (though I'm not near the feature list of LCL yet).

:-)  Not at all. Bug fixes are always welcome, as you know.
