I have updated, recompiled and tested the latest wxNviz and it works GREAT!
All the major issues with control view options and lightning are resolved and work smoothly
and the organization of panels is more intuitive now. 

The scrollbar shows up correctly for the FoldPanelBar
but I am wondering whether the user will think about scrolling down to access the vector, constant surface and volume.
I am wondering whether it would be possible to re-organize the Draw and Surface attribute panels to make 
them smaller. E.g. Emission can probably be removed - it currently does not have any effect
and I am not sure whether anybody has ever used it. Also the Style and Wire color can perhaps go under Shading.

As for the constant surface - it will need the button to select the fine resolution,
 for cutting planes all surfaces must be rendered at the same resolution including the generated constant surface
so user will need to be able to adjust it.
Also, the vectors are automatically draped over all surfaces, so when I had  the constant surface the vectors
showed up twice and I did not have a way to unselect the constant surface in the vector data panel.

The lighting works well, except I still don't see the sphere, but that is obviously a mac issue that can be resolved later
(similarly as with the fringe)
"Look here" option works well too - it would be useful to have look at "center" there as default (rather than empty bar) -
it would allow the user to go back to have the surface pinned at the center of the region.

It is great that you were able to fix most of the problems so quickly - then there will be more time
to do new things,


P.S. This is my 
wx.version() (mac-unicode)
