You could set kLogFile in the copy of wingdbstub.py and send us that 
output.  Also, hover the mouse over bug icon in the lower left of the 
window for the second instance of Wing IDE and verify that it says "no 
debug process / listening for connections" as part of the status message 
that is displayed in tooltip.

If you haven't gotten wingdbstub.py working yet, you may want to start 
with the simpler case of just launching one process.
