If ShowModal returns true, the app hangs...
That's because you've turned control over to wxWindows,
but there is nothing telling the app to die (basically, you need to $app->SetTopWindow($dialog) if you want the application to exit when the window is destroyed).
but I still think returning false from OnInit should be perfectly valid.
I'd say I agree with you (even though I've never had the need/urge to do that),
but I suspect there might be a real good reason for this (a carp
would be fine with me -- you should definetly inquire on the list).
update: I almost forgot, it's called wxPerl, not WxPerl ;)
