It works with wxPython because wxPython builds the "extra" stuff in contrib.
wxGTK is a leaner package, without all the extra stuff.

All packages that need wxGTK will work with wxPython as well, the
opposite is not true.

wxGTK = wxX11 + GTK stuff
wxPython = wxGTK + python stuff + contrib stuff

So, nothing is broken, the requirements for pgadmin3 are correct.
