i am unable to use wxPython under WinXP Pro??? although the demo works just

(using within IDLE>F5)
everytime i attempt to load the lib i get this error:
Traceback (innermost last)
  File "c:\dev\python\test.py", line 2, in ?
    from wxPython.wx import *
SystemError: C:\Code\c1\Objects\listobject.c:88: bad argument to internal

(using IDLE interactive shell)
on the other hand if i load it in the interactive shell i get:
Python 2.2c1 (#27, Dec 14 2001, 13:15:16) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
IDLE Fork 0.8 -- press F1 for help
>>> from wxPython.wx import *

and it works fine when using directly with python.exe or pythonw.exe.

just wondering if there is a fix out since i use IDLE as my editor.

or anyone could sugguest a better/superior editor?
