Nothing was displayed.  I was running from the project manager.  I even
crashed the project manager.  I'm using msys2 to create mingw32 and
mingw64 debug builds of KiCad.  I'm using wxWidgets 3.0.4 (not a debug
build).  I did not check to see if the msys2 wxWidgets package builds
are configured with wxDebugReport enabled so maybe that was the issue.
I'll check the next time I'm in windows.  However, your debug reporter
branch built fine so I suspect this was not the issue.
