If you have a small example of that, could you add it to
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=19144 ?

I also had that feeling, but Michael could not reproduce it.

http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/fpde.zip  is a working windows (but GTK) version
that I saved at some point.

and in the discussion about it, Sebastian said he was dropping fpgui/fpgtk,
and that was pretty much the end of fpde.
