Pyinstaller and import issue with wx.lib.pubsub

My Python GUI app, works perfectly but when I try to create an executable I tried with pyinstaller (3.3.dev0+483c819) command:

pyinstaller gui_app.py


I get the follow issue:

7699 INFO: Loading module hook "hook-wx.lib.pubsub.py"...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 41, in <module>

raise RuntimeError(msg)

8009 WARNING: Hidden import "wx.lib.pubsub.core.topicmgrimpl" not found!


The executable is "successfully" created but when I launch it i get the follow error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "upload_test_run_dynamic_clean.py", line 21, in <module>
from wx.lib.pubsub import pub

ImportError: No module named publisher


I tried to add hookspath is the spec file (it exists a hook for wx.lib.pubsub already in pyinstaller hooks folder) but it did not work, or I did something wrong.

Is there an order to import wx and other submodules.
I have this in my code

import wx
import wx.lib.pubsub.setuparg1
from wx.lib.pubsub import pub
import wx.lib.agw.pybusyinfo as PBI
from wx.lib.scrolledpanel import ScrolledPanel

These modules are missing in core, move them back there in case you have misplaced the modules.
