I just tried it w/ pylint 0.15.2 and had to change the scripts/pylintpanel.py
file that comes with Wing 3.1.5 so line 337 does not set the args --reports
and --include-ids (in other works just do 'args = []' here).

I don't know why this doesn't work on OS X when I think it does elsewhere.

Note that you can see what command line pylint is being executed with in
the Messages tool, under the Scripts channel.  That was how I figured out
what command line to try manually and then saw there were errors.

Hope that helps.
