Sorry, I was thinking that it might in the future.

The command is show-panel w/ a panel_type arg, so the command to display 
the debug probe is show-panel(panel_type='debug-probe').  See 
http://wingware.com/doc/commands/toplevel for more panel types.  It will 
use the most recently visited in the current window if one exists, then 
look for one in other windows, and finally create a new panel if none
