[wingide-users] debug cursor disappears when using interactive shell

I do not have I direct answer to your problem. However I have to deal with a
similar situation for which I have a workaround.

I am using wing in conjunction with Zope.
When I change any code in Wing a dialog pops up giving me a selection what
to do with the altered file. What ever I answer I have to restart Zope.
When I change the code is changed externally of Wing a dialog pops up asking
me whether I want to reload the file. Doing so lets me go on smoothly with
the altered code running.
