Check whether you've got Passive Listen turned on in the debugger
(mouse over and/or click on the bug icon in lower left).  I suspect
that's on and you have two instances of Wing running.  It may be
that somehow one instance no longer has a window but is still running
so you may need to check the task manager or 'ps aux' on Linux/Mac
(or if all else fails, reboot).

If you are not using wingdbstub, you should generally turn passive
listen off.

Please let me know if this does not help.
