Yes, I'm starting to think that this could well be the case.

Oh, I thought I was the only one. FWIW I just use command line tools

I thought you could undock some of its panes, but perhaps this was in some
old version, sorry.

This doesn't seem to be quite the same UI, i.e. I don't think we want
wxMiniFrames or floating AUI panes to be moved with the parent.

No, wxMiniFrame should really look like a "panel", not like a dialog, this
is the whole point in having it -- otherwise you could just use wxFrame.
