i might have to start only updating the fixes stack once a month so i won't bump into these annoying bugs, as i can no longer work on my projects. very unhappy

AFAIK many people use the combination of FPC 3.2 + Lazarus fixes_2_0 branch and it works for them.
You should ask questions about your local configuration or distro related problems in forum or mailing list instead of opening a bug report.

This is 99% sure caused by the changes in TStream.Read() that were merged to 3.2 fixes.
They need accompagnying changes in the compiler in order to work. I had forgotten that when merging.

I will ask if it is OK to merge these changes too or undo the merge of the TStream changes to 3.2

I undid the merge of the TStream buffer changes in FPC fixes 3.2.0.
Please test and close if OK.
