Oki doki, some more information for you.

I have repeated the error, it is now crashing with no filter in place.

Short feedback:
gdb says:
	Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007ffff70b34a7 in wxGridCellAttrData::UpdateAttrRows(unsigned long, 
int) ()
    from /usr/lib64/wx-2.8-wxcontainer/

Long feedback:
1. using a table with 10,000+ records, with oids, with serial field, and 
about 5 other numeric and text fields. I can send you the entire copy 
version if you would like it
2. no external relations or indexes involved apart from the serial field
3. go into view data, select a record, toolbar icon lights up
4. click toolbar icon, record disappears and pgadmin goes with it.
