Oh, I see - you've got all the cool functionality turned off :-(

Not entirely - if you close the Log tab, it seems to crash when
pgAdmin is closed.

Let's get it to work with wxAUI_NB_DEFAULT_STYLE. That allows the
split functionality which is what I think makes this change worthwhile
- the ability to view more than one tab at once and arrange them as
required. A quick test shows it needs a new way to figure out which
tabs are visible (and therefore need refreshing), and there are some
sizing issues which appear to all be our old friend the generic

It also looks a bit nicer than having the close box on all tabs I think.

Yeah - plus it's where we put the option to reset the layout to the
default view.

Yes - but isn't that handled by the AUI code and associated functions
as per frmMain etc?
