A segmentation fault is usually due to a fault down in the C code. With 
wxPython that means most likely a bug in the underlying wxWidgets 
libraries. Have a look in the wxWidgets forums for a known issue with 
your version. Or try asking there.

I doubt it will be a Python problem - except in that it might
be passing an integer (especially zero) where wxWidgets expects a pointer.
