Can you try setting WINGDB_PRINT_ALL_TRACEBACKS=1 in the Environment 
area in the Configure Python dialog (from the Edit menu) and then 
restart the Python Shell and send me the output?  It should print 
additional tracebacks one after the other.

I'm seeing a problem w/ Wing IDE 101 3.2.13 and Python 3.2.x that might 
indicate some sort of problem with setting up environment related to 
default text encoding.  I'll look further into that tomorrow but it will 
be useful confirm whether you are running into the same thing or 
something else.
