Sorry that your bug has sat unattended for so long.

I've recently become active in wx maintenance, and I'm working to
migrate all reverse dependencies of wxwidgets2.6 to wxwidgets2.8 and to
get wxwidgets2.6 removed before wheezy.

As well as that, this is fixed in wxwidgets2.8 (which kicad is now
using), and the apparently blocked bug in kicad (#509956) was closed
over 2 years ago by an "Upstream fix" (a workaround I guess) I think
it's better not to fix this bug at this point.
