I tried wx demos on another Debian sid box and there the testing 
sequence is


I don't know why the first result is 2 that appeared just after unpacking
wxPyhtonDemo. I could not reproduce it by `rm *.pyc` nor  by `rm -rf 
demo/`  and unpacking demo again.  Now the sequence remains 000...
Btw, in my  1st Debian box I was runnin g xorg, I'll try  X11 again
to see if  the issue  was due to  xorg.
