This issue is mentioned for a certain version of OpenOffice at http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=93289

Apparently there the reason was that the name of the binary in the  
info.plist of the application bundle no longer referred to a valid  
application. Since, afaik, the Lazarus application bundle (= the  
Lazarus icon) contains a symbolic link to the binary (outside the  
bundle) rather than the binary itself, did you perhaps move or copy  
the Lazarus application elsewhere and try to start it there? With any  
other application this would work (as it should), but it won't with  
the way Lazarus is currently packaged.

Try creating an alias instead (hold cmd and option and drag the icon  
elsewhere), and starting that.
