I had an app that was working properly with old verions of wxpython
Now with wxpython 3.0, when trying to run the app, I get the following error
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\wx-3.0-msw\wx\_controls.py", line 6523, in __init__
wx._core.PyAssertionError: C++ assertion "strcmp(setlocale(LC_ALL, NULL), "C") == 0" failed at ..\..\src\common\intl.cpp(1449) in wxLocale::GetInfo(): You probably called setlocale() directly instead of using wxLocale and now there is a mismatch between C/C++ and Windows locale.
Things are going to break, please only change locale by creating wxLocale objects to avoid this!

I know it's been a while since this question was asked, but I just had the same issue and thought I'd add my solution in case someone else finds this thread. Basically what's happening is that the locale of your script is somehow conflicting with the locale of the machine, although I'm not sure how or why. Maybe someone else with more specific knowledge on this can fill that in. Try manually setting the locale using the wxPython object wx.Locale:
locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
However, make sure that you assign the output to a non-local variable. As soon as the variable goes out of scope, the Locale object is destructed. So if it's in a class:
self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
