You're using instance attributes a lot where I think local variables
would be better, eg "self.ssn" instead of just "ssn".
In the '__init__' method you have:
self.wTree = gtk.glade.XML(self.gladefile,"mainWindow")
and then in the 'view' method you have:
self.wTree = gtk.glade.XML(self.gladefile,"viewdialog")
In both the 'add' and 'update' methods you have:
self.ssn = self.wTree.get_widget("ssn").get_text()
so I suspect that the following is happening:
1. __init__ makes self.wTree refer to 'mainWindow';
2. You click on the Add button, the 'add' method is called, and the
"self.ssn = " line looks for the "ssn" widget in 'mainWindow';
3. You click on the OK(?) button and view what's just been added;
4. The 'view' method makes self.wTree refer to 'viewdialog';
5. You click on the Update button, the 'update' method is called, and
the "self.ssn = " line looks for the "ssn" widget in 'viewdialog'.
