Cannot reproduce either.

What exactly means: "when Brackets highlight color is set forth time in a row"

- Do you change the color (which one(s)? fore, back or frame color)?
- Do you toggle one or more of the checkboxes? All checked; all unchecked; some on/off?

Attach your editorophions.xml

Describe the exact steps:
- Start IDE / open project (use one of the lazarus sample projects)
- Open options
- set checkbox "bracket hl, foreground" to checked, set fore color to blue.
Alternatively video your steps

Please also run the IDE in the debugger and reproduce.
To do so
- Menu tools > configure build lazarus
  In field options enter/add
    -gw -Criot -gh -O- -Sa -dSynAssert
  tick/check the checkbox or radiobutton "clean all"
  press "build" button
- If finished building, restart IDE (unless it restarted on its own already)
- open project ide/lazarus.lpi
- menu run > run (or F9)

A 2nd IDE opens, reproduce the error.

If the first IDE reports an error, open the stack window (menu view > debug windows), and copy the stack.

If the 2nd IDE hangs, without the first reporting an error, go to the first, press "pause" and get the stack

I cannot reproduce either.
However Ondrej has improved the IDEMenu code since RC2 and r51246. Please try with the latest trunk. My prediction is that your problem is gone.
I hope all the relevant revisions are merged to 1.6.

something freed a keyshortcut, that is still referred by the category 'User defined word markup'

That means the attached editor opts are required too.

I also used (environment) HEAPTRC=keepreleased not sure if needed
