Python + psycopg + wxPython.  My assessment would be
similar to that of Horst, though I use psycopg as my
DB Interface.  I prefer psycopg because it is designed
from the ground up for high performance in highly
threaded applications, which is important for me.  It
also has some nice extensions over and above the
standard Python DBI, eg. per cursor commits.  Python
is definitely the scripting language of choice for
it's clean syntax and ease of debugging (ie. greater
productivity) and wxPython (based on wxWindows) whilst
having a steeper learning curve than say Tkinter (and
sometimes a somewhat non-Pythonic feel) has a richer
widget set, a professional look and feel, and a
development team committed to Python support.  Both
solutions are highly portable.
