Great!

I suspect this is a Redhat-ism.  Maybe not but could be.  There are
reports of some users needing to do this to use Acrobat reader also.
Anyway, could you please just try replacing the string in
the wxPython_thread.py wrap_builtinfunction(func, call_holder) 

 func_tmpl = """\...

with func_tmpl = r"""\..."""

That is make it a raw string and see if that helps?  Also, in the same
long string, change the
call_holder.call('call_holder.result=old_func(*args,**kws)') to use a
raw string.

This is a shot in the dark but the only one that makes any sense (to
my limited knowledge) to try.

cheers,
prabhu
