It looks like our timeout was simply too short so the initial instance of Wing wasn't always waiting long enough to read data after the connection was established. You can fix your Wing IDE 1.1.7 installation by applying the patch here: http://wingide.com/support/downloads_list&prod=wingstd&version=1.1.7§ion=bugfix Please let us know if that doesn't help. > How does WingIDE determine whether it will open an editor or a new > instance of the program? Wing should always reuse an existing instance unless you don't specify any files on the command line or if you specify the --new command line option to force a new instance to be created. The process is controlled by the .instance file in your profiles directory (~/.wingide on Posix or profiles/[username] inside your Wing installation on win32). This means that Wing will only reuse instances on the same machine and on multi-user machines only instances running as the same user. But use of multiple xterms and ssh as you described shouldn't affect any of this as long as the .instance file is readable by both copies of Wing and writable by the initial instance. Hope that helps. - Stephan
