You're trying to merge to event loops. GAIM uses the GTK2+ based loop,
whereas WxPython uses its own event loop. As you're starting the WxPython
main loop to service your program, no GUI events (such as displaying a
window) can get processed for GAIM. This is exactly what you're seeing.
I don't know how to patch into GAIM's event loop, but you should look for
some place where integration of pygtk and pygaim is discussed. wxPython
won't get you very far here.
