Dear Noboru,

Thank you.  I must say the KEK CaPython314 is very easy to use.

I am not surprised that your little test below won't crash,
since it does not contain a wx.Timer.  In order to repeat my
crash, a wx.Timer must be constructed, it must be bound to a
onTimer function, and it must be started.  Using
threading.Timer instead of wx.Timer will not cause the crash.
 I cannot tell who is guilty, wx.Timer or CaPython314.  I also
have the feeling that Python 2.5 may be the problem.

Zhong
