Hi Henning,
just a short info of what I found out. There is something wrong with the 
environment. I've isolated the problen in an wxApp application stub. 
Generating the report with embedded python works just until there is a 
wxLocale::Init() call 'before' generating a report. This is independent from 
calling Py_initialize() before or after wxLocale::Init().  What's silly is 
that this happens only in release mode.

I put a #pragma optimize("",off) in the stub and my python calling function 
but the problem remains. I assume that the problem lies in the wxWigets 
release libs. But putting a pragma in the intl.cpp source didn't help, too.

Now I'll put a question on the wxWidgets mailing list hoping that someone 
leads me out of the dark :-)
Anyway, thanks for your efforts.
