Urgh, so you lose the clipboard if you close the source app. I'll have
to play with it - I have an unbuntu VM kicking around.

Yeah, but it would be nice to not have to tell 'regular' users to do

Yeah, changes which we already worked around. I already expressed my
annoyance on the wx-dev list about that.

It certainly can do (recent example; wx built with VC++ 6.0 won't work
with pgAdmin built with VC++ 8.0 at all). Dunno if there are any
incompatible changes between the GCC versions though.

That said, GCC 4.x is known to be able to compile pgAdmin - in fact, my
Ubuntu VM has

gcc (GCC) 4.0.2 20050808 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.0.1-4ubuntu9)

Which I've compiled pgAdmin with when investigating the crash issue
