There are two separate problems:

   - ghci unable to link static libstdc++ (so doesn't work at all on
   Windows). Actually this should be fixed with ghc > 7.0.2, but I have not yet
   verified (in the process of doing so now), as ghc now ships with libstdc++
   as a dll.
   - wxWidgets static destructors are not called when application
   terminates, so second app run crashes (all platforms)
