We'll look into stopping the WingDBG thread and restarting it, possibly 
be raising an exception to terminate any request being processed.  This 
is somewhat tricky because threads cannot be terminated from another 
thread like processes can.

Note that stopping the debugger from the Zope management interface does 
not do what you want because it lets the current request run to some 
sort of completion.
