[wingide-users] Wing doesn't stop python anymore

Most of my python development is server-side code, invoked as a cgi script 
from apache. I debug on a winXP platform. I'm running python v2.5.

Suddenly, as in for the last few days, I've noticed that when I click the 
"Stop" button in the debugger the IDE stops just as if things have been shut 
down as expected. However, the browser screen that invoked the script stays 
busy and a python executable continues to run in the background. I have to 
bring up task manager and manually kill the python task in order to actually 
stop execution. It's both annoying and dangerous, because the things I'm 
debugging do all sorts of unpredictable things when the code is broken (as 
it generally is when I click "stop").

Is this a bug in Wing, or have I perhaps broken my apache or system 
configuration somehow?
