Hi Dave!

First try was a crash.
I have an SSH connection to a remote database server. Locally there, the 
postgres sytem user can login without password as postgres database user 
(ident sameuser). So I needn't supply a password.
On my first try pgadmin insisted I supply a password, nevertheless. I 
left the field empty and continued. pgadmin showed a couple of errors 
and left me with a "half-connected" database. Trying to refresh on a 
scheme sent pgadmin crashing.
The same or similar bug is present in all versions from v1.4.2 - 1.6beta3.

Good news: I cannot reproduce the "export bug" any more. A couple of 
dozen tries with various selects and settings, no errors.
Minor glitch: the export dialogue window pops up on the low end of my 
screen. Unlike other dialogues (like "Find and Replace") it won't 
remember a new location.
Also the help window has a quirk: when it is activated (and pgadmin main 
window is not minimized), the SQL dialogue vanishes behind main window. 
When I try to bring it to the foreground, the help screen vanishes. I 
cannot see export dialogue and help at the same time. (If I minimze main 
window before clicking help in the export dialogue, I can do the trick).

The "pane shuffling crash" in the SQL dialogue window is still there. 
But that's probably the wxWindows bug you mentioned.

I will test further and send report my findings..
