This looks to be this issue:


It was fixed in:


But it seems only for wx 2.9, not the 2.8 series, though I don't understand
the structure of wxPython's SVN repo - it looks like 3rdparty is separate
to the trunk/branches/tags structure for some reason.  So maybe this will
get fixed in 2.8.13 (which upstream is apparently planning to release).

Anyway, I've added the patch from the changeset above to the debian wx
packaging git repo, and I'll make an upload in the near future.
