This has been fixed in our sources for Wing IDE version 3.2.5. We will 
try to release that in about two weeks.  Unfortunately, PyCon is going 
to delay this release by about a week. Otherwise, we would've tried to 
release it this week.

Note that this problem should only appear with Python 3.x. Using Python 
2.x would be a workaround, although I realize that could be confusing to 
the students.

Thanks for reporting this,
