I recommend joining the wxPython mailing list and posting there. The
guys there are great and can probably help you out. See

If you join the wxPython list, they'll probably ask for a small
runnable sample. Here's some instructions for how to do that:
http://wiki.wxpython.org/MakingSampleApps

It would be good to know what mode you are using for your ListCtrl.
List view, report, icon or what? The demo doesn't have any white space
at the end, so I can't test this easily. Are you using a sizer to hold
the widget?
