Do you mean /etc/x11/(xorg.conf|xf86config-4)?
Font management in X is very confusing and is a pain, but i fail to see how 
this relates to Lazarus not acepting "á"s.
To me the problem seems to be in SynEdit and it's custom text management, but 
who knows.
Btw, the problems seems to be in the PropertyEditor too, extrange since this 
hasn't the problem before...

Well, just the standard "Java is slow/Java is a resource hog/You can't make an 
OS in Java/etc" kind of critics which everybody should be bored to hear right 
now. Also in a smaller amount "Java is not free". There's a couple of other 
personal reasons too but since this discussion is way too of-topic already 
i'll leave them for another time :-).
