You are being a bit informal with what is a method and what is a
function.  Your examples don't even parse.  I think this informality
may be the source of your problem.

perhaps you mean:
   my_frame = Myframe()

No colon above

You seem to be trying to create a subclass dynamically.

The super call is being done inside a function, not a class.

Does this address your problem?:

   class MyFrame(wx.Frame):
       def show_status(self):

       def SetStatusText(self, te, text, nr=0):
           super(MyFrame, self).SetStatusText("mytext: " + te)
