I don't feel I have done anything to get those results in wx, can you check
build environment.

I.e. what wxWidgets version do you have now and what did you have before,
and what gtk version was wxWidgets compiled with gtk-2 or gtk-3?

The changes in wx are real bugfixes, such as out arguments moved to a
return tuple, and some bugs in the command queue handling which could cause
calls to be executed twice or not at all, but rendering of static boxes and
tab navigation are handled by wxWidgets not the wx wrapper, so it sounds
like build changes on your side.
