The wx tarball v2.6.2-38 has landed.

Well, only sort of.
There are three functional tests that fail with tarballs wx-2.6.2- [37, 
38]; consequently, the "chandler/Makefile" wx version value remains at 36.

So we're giving you two options:
You can keep your Chandler build in synch with the functional tests, 
which requires no local changes; however, should you prefer to get the 
latest wx updates, of which there are several significant bug fixes, you 
can bump the value locally to 38, like so:


This value will be updated in svn when the functional test issue are
