Obviously you have not gotten any suggestions here. (Although I just
noticed that the Reply-to goes to the poster, not the list--so maybe
you have.) I wish I could provide some, but I'm also wondering what's
involved with automating the testing of GUI components.

Have you gotten any suggestions elsewhere? Have you tried the wxPython
list or wiki?
