Something to realize is that autocompletion in Wing's editor depends on 
statically analyzing Python source files (mostly) while autocompletion 
in the debug probe uses live data from the process being debugged.  I 
think PythonWin works the same way with its editor and debugger, though 
it's been a while since I've looked.  Many times Wing's debug probe is 
able to provide autocompletion when the editor cannot.

Could you give a specific example of something that doesn't work?  You 
can either send to the list or directly to support at wingware.com
