If launching processes from Wing but then detaching, it lists
them in the attach dialog as long as they exist.  If using wingdbstub,
the attach port is by default 50015, which is set in wingdbstub.py
using the kAttachPort value (or corresponding environment variable).

If you're debugging remotely (host to host or to a process running as a
different user than the IDE), you'll want to read this to also get access   
control set up:


Things get more complicated if you're running multiple processes
since then the default port configured in wingdbstub will be used
only by the first one.  Please let us know if this is a problem 
for you.
