Hmm, thats very strange.  I don't get this error on 2.5.x *but* on any
complex application I do get hard to debug, wierd and random errors.
So it appears that all is not well.  Also, does wxPython-2.4.x have a
'wx/' directory in sys.path?  If that is not the case, _import_wx_core
should never be called and the errors Fernando or you are seeing
should not show up since nothing should have changed in these cases
from the original behavior.  Unless the original behavior was itself

I'll try and check this stuff out on another machine tommorow.
