[wingide-users] Missing breakpoints?

Short cgi program.

I set up wing for external debugging (it works fine with MoinMoin) & import 
wingdbstub in cgi as needed.
Here's a fragment:

13 print "Content-Type: text/html"     # HTML is following
14 print                               # blank line, end of headers
16 # Set up the system path
17 import sys
19 #---------------------------------------------------------
20 # Set up debugger
21 import wingdbstub
23 #---------------------------------------------------------
25 # Get the system environment
26 import os

I set a breakpoint at line 26 and it works as advertised. I can then step 
through the remaining code. Any effort to set a breakpoint *after* line 26 
is ignored. The code works fine, but the debugger won't halt at the 
breakpoint. Commenting out line 26 makes breakpoints stop working 
altogether, it doesn't move or fix the problem.

With a breakpoint set later in the code, when I refresh the browser page, 
the WingIDE status bar flashes the following three messages, in sequence:
1. Something like "Debugger: Debug process running; pid=nnnn [0 modules 
2. Something like "Debugger: No debug process / not listening for 
connections (*very short*)
3. Something like "Debugger: No debug process / listening for connections on 
TCP/IP port 50005

I'm running WinXP, Apache 2.0.54, Python v2.4, WingIDE Professional 
v2.0.4-1, lots of memory, disk & cpu.

What's up?
