Thank you for the quick responses - that was indeed the problem.

I was mistakenly trying to initiate the debugging session from the  
WingIDE GUI, whereas all I needed to do was set the breakpoint, then  
use my browser to load a page at localhost:50080 that would end up  
hitting the line where the breakpoint was set.

Works like a charm!
