I did post a message, as you suggested.  In case anyone is interested, the 
response that I got was:

> It seems in 2_6_BRANCH of wxWidgets source repository this message occur in 
> wxW/src/msw/listctrl.cpp when wxLC_VIRTUAL flag is used.

The version of wx that runs on WinCE is, but the symptoms match.  All 
my test programs that contain a list control in virtual mode produce the 
error message and those with a list control in normal mode do not.  I am 
still searching for a solution to this problem.
