Here (SUEE 10, KDE desktop), the font dropdown list works in an

There are two ways to get it to work: One is to keep the mouse button

The second is to keep the mouse button depressed and move outside and

Neither of these workarounds is very nice and seeing the list appear

Nope - that's a bug. To confirm, you are clicking on the field, or
the dropdown button? (they are meant to do the same thing in a
read only combo). And you are doing a click, not a click-and-hold?

Could you try the release build to see if it is a compilation issue?
If the bug is still there, I will send you a wxWidgets-2.7 sample
app (or you can download it from 2.7 CVSHEAD and build it yourself)
and see if it errors with that.
