Hi all,

from time to time --  under not yet fully understood
circumstances -- the following code snippet actually
succeeds in throwing an exception in our application
( running under wxPython on
Debian (self is a wx.ListCtrl child):

        def set_string_items(self, items = None):
                """All item members must be unicode()able or None."""

                if self.ItemCount != 0:
                        raise ValueError('.ItemCount not 0 after 

There's basically three potential reasons:

1) DeleteAllItems() is broken

        This is unlikely because a) it works as expected most of
        the time and b) it seems quite a prominent method in the
        wxPython body of code such that this kind of breakage
        would have been fixed by now.

2) DeleteAllItems() only schedules deletion of items which
   then happens in a delayed fashion

        I have not been able to confirm this on the web anywhere.

3) two threads get in the way of each other trying to
   use set_string_items()

        A race *could* happen between

        Yes, we do have threads but, no, we are taking care to
        wrap them in wx.CallAfter() as needed (might have missed
        something somewhere).

I am currently investigating 3). Are there any further
hints, or maybe knowledge on 1) or 2) to be had ?
