Using wingdbstub and importing that after pylib has set its 
import hook may solve your problem.  This requires launching your 
code from the command line and not from the IDE.  See 
for more info.

Or, change pylib to call whatever import hook was in place before 
its hook was installed.  It really should do that anyway when 
importing something other than its own magic modules.

Be aware that presence of any import magic may mean Wing won't be 
able to find the modules' source code or correctly identify 
breakpoints, but it depends on how it's done.  In short, the 
source needs to be available on disk and the __file__ module 
attribute or co_filename in the code objects should be set 
to the full path to the source file.

By chance, I'm working on the debugger code now and I'm pretty 
sure removing our import hook entirely won't really work right.  
I'll keep this in mind, though.

Hope that helps.
