Twisted isn't multithreaded -- what you ran into is probably that it
starts another process at startup and that breaks the debugger since the
second process is run without debug.  I'm just guessing tho without
knowing much about Twisted.

The only real solution for this is either to use wingdbstub to debug
the second process or to set things up so that no subprocess is started.
