Ok, so:

When i Clear a TComboBox, if it's width was 100, it shorten 
automatically becoming a 90 TComboBox. (I didn't tested the effective 
shorten difference, it's of course the "scroll box arrow's" width.

Another one is the PATH function that is still not implemented... in 
Windows Ce there seem to be a Linux (LOL!) paths using cause all is 
under a / root.

I know that Roozbeh was working on the ttimage component, that still 
cause a segmentation fault if used (like the Tbitbtn).

Just cause i'm there... I pick the occasion to signal this website: 
In wich the blogger shows (last post at the end of the page) a wince 
application that he did with lazarus and i don't know which framwork he 
did by himself, in the image is possible to see some components that we 
still can't use, like the image, and there's a file scrollbox too. (the 
appeareance looks good too).

I saw that roozbeh already tryed to contact him: 
and mee too, and he seems to be interested to collaborate.

Hope i was useful ;)
