Comment (by kalxas):

 Feedback from GRASS team:

 The main difference between version 8.2.0 and 8.2.1 from a wxPython
 perspective is that version 8.2.1 uses the wxPython wx.aui module
 https://docs.wxpython.org/wx.aui.1moduleindex.html (specifically wx. aui
 .AuiToolBar widget), GitHub issue
 https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/2568. And that's why the GRASS GIS GUI
 doesn't work properly with Python version 3.10, because wxPython version
 4.0.7 contains bugs (in our case, the wxPython module is wx.aui, which is
 used in GRASS GIS version 8.2.1).

 When you try launch GRASS GIS GUI version 8.2.1 from
 -c2463ad-master.iso and you switch to GRASS GIS GUI console you see error
 message (image with error message related with wxPython code is in the
 email attachment).
