The unit name must always match the file name. 
This is logical, because otherwise the compiler can never find it if a reference 
to the unit is made in a uses clause.

It shows it here:
home: >fpc tm.pp -vwi
Target OS: Linux for x86-64
Compiling tm.pp
User defined: compiled with XXX_
tm.pp(10,17) Error: Illegal unit name: XXX_parser
tm.pp(16,16) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping
Fatal: Compilation aborted
Error: /usr/local/bin/ppcx64 returned an error exitcode

So probably a lazarus issue ?
