[wingide-users] Remote Debugging Paths

I'm using remote debugging capabilities of WingIDE professional on my Mac 
OS 10.4 machine.

It works pretty well. The cgi script I am debugging runs on a server in FL. 
I'm working from my home in California.

However, using Subversion for code respository, and making branches and oh 
how I WISH the remote debugging info like Paths and IP addresses and so on 
could be stored PER PROJECT instead of just one time for the whole 

But I digress.

Some of my branches are in a directory with a much longer path name.
The path name won't fit into the form in WingIDE where I need to enter it.
So I created a symlink. A directory with a much short path and point it to 
the real directory.

But this doesn't work either.

Grrr. I am kind of frustrated and disappointed at the moment...there seems 
to be no workaround.

I don't see why there has to be such a limit on the path length. Allow a 
really, really long path. What's the harm in that?
