from your messages to clp I see that you are running into the same 
problems I had with wxPython when starting. So please allow me to pass on 
some experiences that you do not have to earn yourself:

1) pythonwin (from Activestate) is a great IDE. But it is horrible with 
wxPython. Change to PyCrust (*)

2) Many of the problems are covered in the WIKI on 
   I to often missed reading there before

3) Thomas Heller says you can savely ignore the warnings from py2exe :)

4) you get more great editing featores by switching to scite. 

5) ASPN at activestate has a great, searchable, free archive of wxpython 
mailinglist. It is more than helpfull.

Good luck,


(*) it's something with event loop, discussed in great detail in the 
wxpython mailing list
