    I had similar problems installing wxPerl on OSX10.5 with that particular
    test. I ended up just removing that one test file and everything else
    installed and has worked fine ever since. Still not sure what the
    underlying issue is. It may be worth skipping that test on OSX until the
    issue is understood.

    so I think Schwern has also forced that but then he encountered the following:

    when he tired to launch Padre he got a bunch of
    "CGContextRestoreGState: invalid context"
    and then he gave me this http://rafb.net/p/CDntY368.html

    I hope someone here will know more about this.

    Man, padre sure has a big pile of dependencies!

    I installed it and did see those CGContextRestoreGState: invalid
    context errors. However, it did seem to work, at least fooling around
    with it a little. Do you know what you need to do with padre to make
    it crash like that?

    I had to run it like this to get it to pop up a window I could interact with:

    /usr/bin/wxPerl /usr/local/bin/padre

    I am using OS X 10.5's copy of perl, + a recent but not quite cutting
    edge wxPerl and a copy of wxWidgets compiled via Alien::wxWidgets.
    (Wx 0.81, wxWidgets 2.8.7)

    What do I do to make it crash?

    I think Schwern is using OS X 10.4 but I am CC-ing him as well.
    Maybe he can help you crash padre :-)

    I'm using OS X 10.4, Perl 5.10.0 and WxWidgets compiled from MacPorts. Wx is
    the latest version of CPAN and it has a segfault in one of the tests, so I
    forced the install.

    Fixed the segmentation fault (introduced in 0.86, only happens on Mac
    with wxWidgets compiled in ANSI mode).
