I seem to have misread your email before my previous reply.  I thought
you were talking about focus shifting within Wing (from, say, the Python
Shell to editor) and not from app to app.

You can disable auto-raising of Wing's windows when debugging on Windows by
turning off the Debugger / Force Win32 Window Raising preference.

Sorry about the confusion...
