Thanks for trying that.  It doesn't mean much to me, unfortunately -
looks like this is a log from boinc rather than wx.

Assuming you successfully built with the wx debug version (looks like
boinc's configure will fall back to the non-debug version with a warning
if it can't find the debug one), then it looks like we didn't catch any
wx API misuse issues.

However, I noticed that Ubuntu have recently included a patch for this
menubar issue:


That sounds like it might fix the boinc issue, so I've included in it
a new wxwidgets2.8 upload I've just made to unstable.  Can you try at see if that solve this issue?
