[wingide-users] mysterious crash in debug mode when importing sqlobject

I have a script with a single line: import sqlobject

the sqlobject package is installed properly. It works fine of course when I
run it from the command line and using the Pythonwin debugger. However, when
I try to run it in WingIDE I get the a nasty exception in the recursive guts
of regular expressions virtual machine. I tried to trace it back, but it's
too convoluted in there. I tried to restart wing a couple of times and it
didn't help. I searched the web and I didn't find anyone else with a similar
problem. Does anyone have a clue?

Thanks, Gigi
