Wing's debugger doesn't support PyQt's QThreads because they are not based
on normal Python threads in a way that works w/ our existing debugging
hooks.  This results in what you are seeing, that you cannot stop on
breakpoints there.

We'll try to fix this.  A work-around may be to import wingdbstub on
the thread you want to debug.  See the following for instructions on
doing that:
