I'm fairly sure this is Wing's debugger falsely identifying a 
normal exception as one that will lead to program termination.
This can still happen in the current version of Wing, although
it's much rarer than it used to be.

You can check "Ignore this exception" in the Exceptions tool
then continue debugging.

There's some more information about exception handling in
general here:


If that doesn't solve the problem, please let us know.
