I'm on lion too,
but before lion my problem with wx and snow leopard was that i'm using python 64 bit (and wx is not ready yet)
The last time i tried to update my wx to 2.9.x to be able to have all running as 64bit i had lot of problems
so i switched to the old tcltk gui for a stable usage.
i'll provide as soon as possible all the issue i'm having running wxpython (using python.org) in 64 bit mode
on both snow leopard and lion.

>> AFAICT, most of the bugs in 6.4.1 have been corrected in 6.4.2, and 6.4.2 also benefits from a number of updates/enhancements to the code. There is actually a pretty big difference between 6.4.1. and 6.4.2.
>> Have you tried the current 6.4.2 svn? If not, you can get it from my site for Snow Leopard at <http://www.public.asu.edu/~cmbarton/files/grass_mac/OSX10.6-snowleopard/>. The "frameworks.txt" tells which of William's framworks are used in this. I've posted binaries for 6.4.2 svn, 6.5, and 7 compiled 28 August. So you can compare current versions.
>> While GRASS 7 was somewhat unstable for awhile (it IS a dev version), I am finding it very stable now. A lot of bugs have been fixed.
>> What is the problem you are having with wxGUI on the Mac? This is the default for 6.4.2 (though TclTk is still there for those who prefer it). It gets wonky if you install a 3rd party Python, but otherwise should be very stable in 6.4.2 and 7. If there are bugs, please report them.
