Go back to using wxPython until this is fixed in Boa. The problem is
that wxPython no longer imports the string module and Boa has some
modules that are doing a from wxPython.wx import * but don't import the
string modules themselves. So, with these modules can't load
properly anymore. Riaan will be checking in a fix to cvs soon and I think he
also plans to make a Boa 0.2.1 release.
