You're not by any chance trying to open a console are you? In run 
properties or in your project settings have you got Debug Console set 
to Start New Console?

This is the same problem as I'm having, and unfortunately I can't tell 
you how to fix it at the moment apart from switching the debug console 

Stephen mailed back with what wingb actually calls, which is xterm -T 
"window title" -e "/path/to/" -u "/path/to/"

When I try xterm  from terminal it fails with a /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm Xt 
error: Can't open display: message in console. However I can set the 
display with setenv DISPLAY :0.0 and then xterm works OK, but setting 
DISPLAY in the wingdb script doesn't work :-/

I'm going to take a long hard look at the shell script (wingdb which is 
in tomorrow to see if I can figure it out.


btw chandler looks mighty cool
