I discovered that I'm having the same problem on my Feisty machine too, 
and I realized that my chandler dir on that machine may not have been 
fully updated when I tested before.  So I worked backwards in SVN and 
discovered that this crashing problem with the new wx starts with 
r15394.  Before that the debug linux version runs fine, including the 
full functional tests.  Andi, that was the rev that merged the lucene 
branch into trunk.  Any ideas?
