Re: WxChoice behaviour
Message ID:
Hi Steve and Johan,

Absolutely right, not enough info. We're on Ubuntu 12.04, wxPerl 2.8.10.

Yep, non-wxPerl apps too, so yes, this is system-related. Unfortunately,
that doesn't put it beyond my scope.

I should stress, I don't believe there's a wxPerl answer to this, I think
it's a GTK config issue. I was just hoping someone on the list had seen it
before I try further afield.
