With Debian Sarge, using wxPython- via the libwxgtk2.4-python
package, I use wxPython and VTK-4.4 fairly regularly.  wxc.so links to
libpthread so I'm guessing that wxPython is built with threads.  No
problems.  This is even when I use wxPython and VTK interactively
using IPython with the -wthread option.  This is with GTK-1.2 and with
the wxVTKRenderWindowInteractor.py from 4.4.

Hmm, using the Enthought enhanced Python build works perfectly for me
under win32 + wxPython-2.4.x + VTK 4.4.
