Ok, I sneaked a bit of work into a talk and I just committed into CVS what I 
think is a fix for this.  It seems to work for me under both GTKAgg and WXAgg, 
but I may well have missed something (I know very little about signal 
handling).  Take it for a spin if you get a chance, I'll have net access 
tomorrow for a bit and then I'll be offline until next week (climbing at 
Joshua Tree ;)
