First, to answer Eric's question, I never seem to run into problems
with gui_thread starting. gui_thread is supposed to block when it
starts thanks to `pexec`. Atleast this is what it does for me under
My experience with gui_thread is much better than Pearu's. I happen
to use gui_thread pretty regularly with 22.214.171.124 under Linux without
any of these problems. I have a simple `ipythonrc-gt` that merely
imports gui_thread and starts the thread. There are occasional
problems with the Python session hanging on exit (Ctrl-C exits cleanly
though) but none when running code. This is on a Debian sarge box
with Python-2.3.4. I built wxPython-126.96.36.199 from source.
I suspect that there is one hack that I applied that only fixes a
2.5.x related problem that is driving 2.4.x users up the wall. Could
you please try this out and see if things improve?
Change line 95 to this:
Please see if it helps when you are using 2.4.x. With 2.5.x, this
seems to make all the difference. So if it fixes Pearu's problem, we
cn work out a solution that satisfies everyone.
