[Freewx-maint] Bug#575536: Bug#575536: Acknowledgement (/usr/lib/libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0: segfaults in wxWindow::DoSetSize due to m_parent being NULL)

I happened to be taking a look at this anyway the past couple of days,
and I think that the problem is that glx doesn't work under vnc

A similar segfault happened in this bug report:

This bug report happened for the person consistently on a normal X
session and was caused because they had a broken glx thing installed.

the application that that bug report was about and mayavi2 both do use
3D stuff. and I don't think glx works under VNC server (glxgears
doesn't work). so mayavi2 won't be able to work under VNC anyway.

then the only bug here would be that wxwidgets should give an error
message and exit instead of segfaulting when glx isn't
