It could be the LANG=C thing that Michael Reimpell reported.  Try

LANG=C ipython
[gui_thread tests]

and see what you get.  If that does not fix it, you could try to edit
wxBackgroundApp.py and change the finished.wait(0.5) to
something larger like finished.wait(2.0) and retry.  

Either way do let me know what works.  On my machine I'm able to run
wxPython apps from inside IDLE using gui_thread (not that I use IDLE
at all, but just to show that its now possible to do it). :)
