You forgot to mention that you are using the unicode build of wxPython

It is a problem in wxPython with the wxStyledTextCtrl. I forgot to add a
of it to the Bugs.txt file, sorry.

If anyone want to investigate it, the freeze happens here:
"Python22\lib\site-packages\wxPython\", line 991
    def StyleSetSpec(self, *_args, **_kwargs):

It works well enough with the unicode build of wxPython and there
isn't that much difference between that and so I suggest you
until or 2.4.1 is out.
