[fpc-devel] Lazarus mixes the mouse-over source files

I stumped into a little confusing part regarding how it is determined 
what source and unit files are used by Lazarus and the FPC compiler.

By moving my mouse over a function/procedure call, Lazarus displays the 
source code file where that item is declared.
However, it seems that if there are multiple declarations exist for that 
item in the packages/fpc source/etc. directories then the editor can 
select different files to show in the hint even within the same editor 
The attached screenshots are two hints displayed for the same source 
code file for two calls and Lazarus shows two different source code 
files for both.
1. the call "apr_table_get(" shows the httpd20 directory
2. a few lines later the call "ap_get_remote_host(" shows the httpd13 

from the FPC SVN sources.

The question is how to make Lazarus/FPC use the httpd22 directory both 
for the mouse over hints and during compilation? (usually one is 
developing something for only one Apache version at a time)

Thank You.
