wxString and thread safety


Remember a month or so ago when I “discovered” that wxString isn’t thread safe, but had a strange sense of deja vu?

Well, I stumbled upon this comment today:
// Oh dear.  When in UTF-8 mode, wxString puts string iterators in a linked list, and
// that linked list is not thread-safe.

Yeah, that’s right.  Me.  Sigh.
