If I recall correctly, this syndrome is covered in the book. It
happens because the diagnostic's going to a window that closes when
the app does. Look up wx.App(redirect=True) in the index -- you can
write the diagnostic to a file and examine it at leisure. Sorry, I'm
doing this from memory so the details are hazy.
