Wing probably found Python 2.5 and is trying to use that but 
failing because the debugger support for Python 2.5 that was 
shipped with Wing 2.1.2 was based on 2.5rc1 and the byte code 
version number in Python was incremented after that, which broke 
our shipped debugger support.

To fix this, Check for Updates from the Help menu and install at 
least the Python 2.5 debugger patch, then restart Wing.

Sorry for any confusion.
