In F22/Rawhide, wxPython has been updated to version 3.0.  Unfortunately, this has resulted in some UI issues with winpdb (see attached screenshot):

a) The menu buttons are not sized correctly.
b) The main windows (Namespace/Source) are not sized correctly.
c) The Help->About dialog doesn't display correctly.

There are some GTK errors logged which may be related to some of the above:
(winpdb:19139): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_set_size_request: assertion 'height >= -1' failed

(winpdb:19139): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_set_size_request: assertion 'height >= -1' failed

(winpdb:19139): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_set_size_request: assertion 'height >= -1' failed

Debian has patched their version of winpdb to support wxPython 3.0.  It is possible their patch may help with some of these issues:

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2015-04-01 15:34:13 UTC
I'm not skilled enough with wxPython to rework the UI here. The Debian patch is pretty straightforward, so I'll apply it, but I don't think it resolves most of the layout sizing issues. The app still seems to be functional, so I'll just make an update with the debian patch applied. If someone else would like to send over a patch to improve the UI sizing, I'd definitely consider it.
