http://wxpython.org/builddoc.php says that the package builds *both* wxWidget and wxPython. Maybe it's to avoid dll hell with mismatching release...

I don't mean from the kicad side, is the wx build which worries me

OK similar to me then. wx-2.8 and python-2.7 should give troubles then (never used python, I installed it only to run bzr:P)

When you build wxWidget you could enable a 'checked build' which pops up assertion boxes on programming issues (like using an uninitialized dc and stuff). I tracked down a lot of bugs in kicad with these.

Anyway thanks for the suggestion, I'll try to make it work...
