I am also having the same issue with Kubuntu 12.04, and the 4.15-1 of 
wingide with patches 01, 02 and 03 applied. When I run wingide from the 
command line I get the following error message, following the debug 
dialog box is confirmed:

rmos at spot2:~/python/dialog/snack$ wing4.1
The program 'wing.py' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
   (Details: serial 9862 error_code 3 request_code 153 minor_code 3)
   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() 

The only change that I can see is that there was an update to the 
xserver-common package which could have an impact.
