Re: w3af GUI
I use w3af_gui and w3af_console as well for webapp testing. Before every test I issue a 'svn up' command to update the w3af framework, have you tried this? If not give it a shot and I bet it will fix the errors you are getting.
Also is it just the gui that errors or the console as well?
