In the just-released Wing 3.1 beta3 the Python Shell no longer stops
all spawned threads, which it did in all previous releases of Wing
(including also the just-released 3.0.5).

You may want to try that beta release to see if it solves the problem.
If not, please let us know.  It's possible it's something else, though
I'm hopeful it's the threading issue fixed in beta3.
