Thanks -- it was the clue I needed to figure this out.  When I had  
copied the source code from my old machine, I'd accidentally copied a  
"temp" directory which was used by py2app as the "bdist_base" input  
to the setup() call, and that temp directory included the older copy  
of wxPython.  I'm not sure why py2app didn't recognise that the files  
were out of date and replace them with the newer version, but never  
mind - I simply deleted the "temp" directory, ran py2app again, and  
it works.

Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions and help!

  - Erik.
