Strange wxChoice.FindString behavior

Hello everybody,

I had this problem using the FindString funcion of a wxChoice object
on wxPython:
* I have Windows 98
* I read a text file edited on a Japanese computer, but only uses
'english' characters.
* From the file I loaded some strings in some wxChoice object.
* Later when I wanted to find an string using 'FindString' I never
got a match, even when I say my string, I printed both strings and
look same!, same lenght, same internal coding, so the only way to find
my string is by using:

## my own Find string function, choice is a wxChoice object
def FindString(choice, thestring):
for i in range(choice.GetCount()):
txta = choiceDevice.GetString(i)
if len(txta) != len(thestring):
if map(ord, txta) != map(ord, thestring):
return i #we have a match
return -1 #not found

So this is my best solution to something I think should not happen.
Any comments?.
