I don't see how I can do that since I don't know what causes the issue.  If I 
knew what triggered the problem I'm sure it would be easy for me to prevent.  
It might help - I'm on openSUSE 10.3 python 2.5.1, wing 3.2.3-2 (rev 18566).

I just commented out a section of code, saved and closed wing.
I re-opened wing and I get 

The file ozvideomaster.py contains indentation with Tabs And Spaces.  It may 
appear incorrectly  in some editors and may contain unexpected errors in 
block structure.  Total indents = 413 (1t/412s/0t+s).  You may wish to repair 
this file by converting it with the indentation manager.

Wing did not display the dialog the 100 other times I opened the file.  But 
after a commented section it did.`
