[GRASS-dev] OSX Snow Leopard problem with python

I had some problems getting wxpython GUI to run after upgrading to OSX  
10.6 Snow Leopard.  I thought I might need to rebuild (I was using the  
Leopard binaries), but that doesn't help.

When I got GRASS to execute to correct Python (another issue I know  
how to workaround), starting the GUI does nothing.  With DEBUG level  
5, I get:

GRASS 6.5.svn (spearfish60):~ > g.gui wxpython
D1/5: Attempting to start 'wxpython' GUI ...
D3/5: forking 'python' ...
re-executing using pythonw
GRASS 6.5.svn (spearfish60):~ >

And the GUI never appears.  I kinda wonder if it has something to do  
with the old fork/exec problem that started with Leopard (or was is  
Tiger), and maybe now instead of a warning, it simply fails (nothing  
else in the console log).
