There is no Initial Directory set, so from the tool tip it should be 
defaulting to the project root listed above.

That would seem to at odds with the documentation:

"..set PYTHONPATH so Wing's source analyzer and debugger can find your 
files, and set any other necessary runtime environment for your code ..."

and with what I am seeing. When I removed the code from site-packages it 
disappeared from the Source Browser.

If by Project view the Project tab that shows up with F2 then I do not 
have site-packages in there. The only directories listed there are the 
sub-directories of the project root.

It would seem it is in fact used.

I would appreciate if you could. There seems to be theory/reality 
discrepancy going on:) It could be something I am doing on my end, but 
from what I gather from the docs I should not be seeing duplicates.
