There are some known issues with 2.2.9; backporting is slow, as they're
focused on the 2.3.x series so they can release a 2.4 very soon. Most
bugs seem to be gone there, and only the Mac port is lagging behind.
(Also check out the wxUniversal variant)

I'm not sure why that would be - do you have the code somewhere I can
get it and try compiling here? My own programs compile successfully with
both GCC and VC++. I use Debian, so any obscure requirements would be
automatically included; I doubt it requires much beyond Gtk+, though, as
I see no reference to libttf.
What form did you download wx in? Source or a package from the distrib

wxWindows is the best cross-platform toolkit ;)
I usually include everything in one main header, and have different
windows in source+header form include that.
