[GRASS-dev] GRASS 7 crashes on startup on Mac

I just compiled trunk, no compile errors, and GUI runs fine.

OSX 10.7 Lion, Xcode 4.6.2 command line tools, wxPython 2.9.4

I'm a bit lost now - what is the status of this, what is the current problem?

I have not seen the toolbox, but it may reuse the same code. If I knew what this new code is, I might be able to troubleshoot it. But I don't have time to try to reverse engineer it without guidance as to where to look. The error on importing wx is misleading as to what the real error is.

>>> yes, perfect, thanks. Could you try the compilation again with the change William did recently (demolocation probem, [1])? It might be related because from the errors in the log it seems that the virtual grass session is not there. If the problem is still there, please send me updated compilation log.
