the bug has been reported upstream. It's the most likely due to new version of python-wxgtk. In kali it is python-gtk2.8 but in kali-rolling it's python-wxgtk3.0

Upstream doesn't maintain webshag. Here is his answer:
"Unfortunately I don't really maintain Webshag anymore. I would be sad to learn that it is removed from the future version of Kali but it will most probably never be updated/corrected..."

Do we remove webshag from kali-rolling?

FTR Mati said that we can drop webshag.

webshag dropped: version 1.63 of kali-meta
