In Win64 using 32bit FP.EXE I could not find bugs using keyboard, but using mouse I can confirm strange scrolling problems.

Alternatively you might want to examine some (n)curses lib based solution:

Some Pascal libs:

Maybe using something like TinyCore Linux with fast boot can make you change from text mode to gui where you have more powerful and actively maintained components like SynEdit?

Are you aware of SETEDIT and RHIDE?  Both are C++ programs based on a ported Turbo Vision (the C++ version).  SETEDIT is a programmer's text editor, RHIDE extends it and adds IDE features.  You might be able to use them directly as they already have very nice support for C/C++ syntax highlighting and GNU compilers.

FP was built from RHIDE actually or was forked.
Check it out. It is still alive and well ,looks like, with Pascal support. No compiler action, it appears, but hopefully they have worked out your immediate issue with the mouse.

Avra makes a good point though. Kinda hard to match the Lazarus editor.

Note that tearing in the editor screen under Linux are not issues in unit editors, but in the terminal code of Linux. This can be checked by simply testing on Windows.

For best results on *nix it is advised to use xterm. (or putty's xterm emulation).   

The turbo vision clone is mostly user driven, and Pierre works on it from time to time with few if none external contributors.

I confirm strange scrolling problems with mouse running FP.EXE in WinXP. Just open big PAS file, grab scrolling box with mouse trying to put it all the way to the top or to the bottom and you will see erratic jumps bug when you are at one of the ends. I don't know if that is the bug OP talked about or the new one.
