boa from cvs (0.28)

A demo, the wxGrid one ain't working in boa, because of some __import__ stuff : the wxGrid example is a global importing itself other file, using __import__ hook.
Boa does not cope with __import__, which require a change of working directory to be available.

    My response from the mailing list:

    Yeah one or two other demos also suffer from similar issues.

    Boa already sets the current working directory (CWD) before
    importing a demo and restores it afterwards, but this doesn't
    work for the case where the demo page tries to import
    something again at a later stage.

    I don't want to leave the CWD changed so I don't have a
    solution for this corner case.

    Riaan.
