Yes, the main debug file is now set in the Debug tab of Project

I removed it from the project context menu thinking that cases like yours
would be covered by not setting a main debug file at all and just letting
Wing debug the current file and/or using the Debug Recent menu in the Debug

If those don't cover your case, please let us know.  I think having
this in the project context menu was somewhat of a GUI design mistake,
but it may be we need another way to do this if Debug Recent isn't
