Hi Doug.

I'll take a look at that.  My previous email may not have been as clear
as I'd intended it to be.  wxPython 2.6 (spec'd for AG3.0bx) doesn't work
with the AG2.4 Shared Browser.  But wxPython 2.5 works for both AG2.4 and
AG3.0b2 Shared Browser.
So, I'll install the latest version of wxPython 2.5.x.  My concern is the
issue of AG3.0 not working correctly in some ways with wxPython 2.5 or 2.5.x.
I'm pretty sure that Tom explained that at some point when discussing the move
from wxPython 2.5 to wxPython 2.6 for AG3.0.
