I didn't modify this file, but I'm pretty sure this would cause the Show 
function to not block since if I start ipython with -pylab, I can verify 
the non-blocking feature.

My problem is that -pylab and -wthread don't work the same way.

ipython -pylab pylab_script.py # __doesn't__ block
ipython -wthread wx_script.py # __does__ block

It would be nice if -wthread worked the same as -pylab
