It's probably a bug but is likely caused by certain conditions, such as the
contents of your project file.  Could you submit a bug report from Wing's
Help menu?  That would give us more info to go on.

Something to try is to remove everything from your project and just add
a limited number of directories to see if that's the cause.  Also check
that there isn't a search process running in Search in Files.
