This happens if Wing fails to pack up and transfer the data value 
from the debug process to IDE within a certain amount of time.  
Wing stores this fact and doesn't try again to avoid hanging up 
the debug process during data inspection.

You can clear this from the Debug menu with Clear Stored Value 
Errors and/or right click on the value and select Force Reload.

My guess from what you write is that this happened during some 
transient, possibly brief, network failure and not because this 
value was really taking too long to pack up and send back to the 
IDE.  Unfortunately, it's hard for us to detect the exact cause 
and we do need to do this to avoid the debugger being unusable 
with certain types of code and values.

Hope that helps.
