Yes it is. It was as a result of that report that I raised this again
on deb-ia64 just a few days ago, though with much the same result again
as the thread you pointed out.
All evidence available to me at this stage does indeed point to this
being a transient bug on the ia64 buildd's and not a problem with wx
A new stable release of wx is in the works, but there is still more to
be done before it is ready for upload. If someone would like to do a
binary only nmu of the current release for ia64 in the meantime then,
please feel free.
I objected to doing this earlier because I thought it might hide a real
bug in wx or cause more trouble with other dependent packages, but that
does not seem to be the case, so there is no reason not to recompile the
package with a newer toolchain if that indeed fixes the problem.
