Wing can only manage one debug process at a time, so what might be 
happening is it's connected to the first one and thus can't accept
connections from the second one.  Make sure you disconnect from the
first process before it spawns the sub-process you want to debug,
and of course check that Wing is listening for connections (set
debug.passive-listen=1 in your preferences), that wingdbstub is
being imported, etc.

You might try setting kSilent=0 in wingdbstub.py and see what it's
reporting when it gets imported.  I can help interpret the verbose
and cryptic output if you email it to us.

Hope that helps.
