Ok, I just committed a patch that I think should fix the particular
problem you were encountering - let me know if it does not, or if you
encounter some other problem trying to run the fitgui.

Also, if you there are some models/distributions you want to use that
are not already included in the builtin models (rather likely, as most
of them are astronomy-related aside from the basics like gaussian,
linear, polynomial, and so on) it's straightforward to add new ones in
your own code and register them so that the gui will display them as
options.  If it's a fairly standard distribution, feel free to submit
it to me and I can add it to the astropysics builtins, as well.
