Do you have partial paths on your Python Path?  That's generally a bad
things for the debugger when combined with chdir() -- you get partial
paths in __file__ and the code objects and there's no way for Wing to
resolve those unless the current directory is correct.  It's best to
avoid this by using full paths in your Python Path and removing all
the generated *.pyc files so they get recreated with full paths the
next time you debug or run your code.
