What, pgAdmin crashes when you paste into gedit?(!!!)

Copy/paste from what control?

Please check SVN trunk for this - I found a couple of issues recently.

Hmm, yes well, get them to update to the latest wx and *not* patch it
for a start. We go out of our way to work round bugs and issues in stock
wx (and other libraries), and it really doesn't help when the distros
try to fix things themselves in ways that sometimes don't get into the
upstream packages and may even be plain incorrect.

Aside from that though, Ubuntu seems to be the only distro we ever see
these issues reported on - what else is non-standard that might have
some effect on things?

Regards, Dave.
