The sanity tests showed that the debugger is working, the connection to 
the IDE works, and that the IDE could bring up the correct file when the 
process being debugged stops.

Ahh, modifying the file also had the side effect of causing the .pyc 
file to be recompiled.  It may have contained a different filename 
before -- the .pyc file contains the .py filename at the time it was 
compiled.  Removing .pyc files before debugging is a way to fix this 
problem.  This doesn't explain why it worked previously from the Mac, 
however, so it could have been something else.
