As you know, aMule uses wxWidgets for the multiplatform capabilities and virtually anything having to deal with the O.S.
wxWidgets just got to version 2.6.3 some days ago, and it's the recomended version for aMule, as it was tested heavily with it before release. So, everyone should update, as 2.6.1 has socket bugs and 2.6.2 has a locale crash on startup.
As usual, my reply to "I have this or that problem" that seem related to wxWidgets, if you're not using 2.6.3 or CVS version of it, will be "update". So... update.
You can download wxWidgets from their own site
or pester your distro to update it.
And have fun.
