Yes, this is nasty.  I'll add it to the list of things we should try to
handle better whenever possible.

Hmmm, do you happen to have Python on a network drive?  We're still
trying to figure out the conditions that cause this and haven't yet
replicated the problem locally and it doesn't happen for everybody.

Could set the following prefs:


And then send us the total output of a run of Wing that includes these
