Hi Dan, 

Had some more time to play with CHIRP tonight.. 

It gets stranger!

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 beta2 and ran chirp w/o issue! (I was able to get the memories off of my TH-D72)

The only thing I can think of is that Python, GTK and PyGTK are different on this system

I'm running Python 2.7.1+ with GTK 2.24.4 and PyGTK 2.22.0

Anyway, I'm totally at a loss as to why both OSX and Centos 5.5 have problems but Ubuntu doesn't.
