It would be helpful to submit a bug report from the Help menu with the
"include error log" checkbox selected after you restart.  This may
provide us with some useful information.

Details on what specific action(s) (stepping, expanding variable data,
typing in debug probe, etc) immediately preceded the freeze would
also be useful.

Sending us your preferences file would also be useful.

Also, please let us know what version of Zope you're using and which
version of WingDBG.

One test, if you can stand it, is to debug in combined window mode
and see if you still see the problem.  It's conceivable using 
one-window-per-editor mode is bringing out a bug somehow.

Finally, have you tried bringing up the Task Manager with ctrl-alt-delete
when this happens or is the system totally unresponsive?  If you wait say
a minute or two, does it ever unfreeze?

Thanks for the report -- hopefully we can narrow down what is going
on in this case.
