Maybe the soln is to allow clicking and holding the debug icon in toolbar 
to pop up the recent debug menu (which is currently in the Debug menu) so
it's easy to select a particular file (main debug file or otherwise).

For now, you might just want to Clear Main Debug File from the Debug menu. 
In that case, Wing will debug the current file by default (even when using 
the regular debug initiation commands and toolbar icons).  This of course 
means you need to go to your main debug file when you want to debug that, 
but if you don't do that often it may be a better way to work.

If you do this, you may need to add the location of your main debug file to 
the Python Path in Project Properties since unsetting it will remove the 
implied inclusion of its directory.
