            You should have let us know about this problem. It's hard to help you without any other information. Of course, both devel and stable branches of wxWindows are supposed to compile...

            Also, the (stable) 2.4.0 version of wxWindows is being released right now, so the point is a bit moot anyway.

            Devel branch
            It uses wx devel branch wich I was not able to compile :(...
            If only it used the stable branch I might be using it right now.
            Well, back to balsa or mozilla :/...

            A very good one indeed !
            Now mahogany is my only email client. Full imap compliant, very depply configurable, and quite stable.

            Can't wait for background folder operations/imap caching (sometimes it takes a few seconds to display folder's content)

            now much better
            Current cvs versions and upcoming 0.60 should be much more stable and usable.

            Bad Memory Leak
            I just installed 0.50 from the RPM's, and it took about 10 minutes to use all my RAM, AND all my swap. Ugh.
