I saw this thread from Feb 09 (it appeared to be restricted to Vista 
x64), but did not find a resolution.  I've had no problems until I 
upgraded from Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04 (32-bit) over the weekend.  Of course, 
that means lots of new packages and a new Linux kernel, but one specific 
difference: the system "default" is Python 2.6 (although Python 2.5 is 
still installed).  I've tried forcing the Project to use 2.5, but no 
difference.  Starting either Python from an external shell is fine.

I tried Stephan's suggestion of enabling the Debug logging (and the 
Extremely Verbose option) and "Step into..." a program, but it did not 
create a log file.

The error message I get is: "Failed to start the debug the program:  
Could not listen on TCP/IP host, port 0."

I suspect that it has something to do with the "port 0", but my 
Debugger/"External/Remote" lists the server port as 50005.  Is this port 
configure elsewhere?

Any ideas?  Everything was fine before the Ubuntu upgrade.  I've tried 
the WingIDE 3.2 Beta version, too; same problem.
