I'm working to migrate all reverse dependencies of wxwidgets2.6 to
wxwidgets2.8 and to get wxwidgets2.6 removed before wheezy.

This bug is easy is essentially cosmetic - it does suggest DISPLAY isn't
set properly, the only issue is the segfault after that - and is fixed
in wxwidgets2.8, so I don't think it's useful to try to fix it in 2.6 at
this point.
