The log seems to show Wing is refusing the connection, or it is 
otherwise not getting through.  Since you got connected twice, I'm 
wondering if it's just the case that Wing already has an active debug 
session.  You would need to stop that first so that wingdbstub can 
connect from Maya.

Another common problem:  If Maya is running on another machine than Wing 
IDE or as another user, you may be missing the wingdebugpw file.  The 
mayamel wiki seems to cover that case at http://tinyurl.com/2cj95z6 
(requires clicking links to reveal content in-line, which I found a bit 
confusing) or see our docs at

Not that I know of and those settings are not used when debugging Maya 
with wingdbstub.  There is some additional information at 
http://wingware.com/doc/howtos/maya and the mayamel wiki at 

Please let me know if this does not help.
