In case anyone else runs into this, I quit everything and restarted my Mac.  
Works now.  Thanks.

It's not managing to connect to the IDE for some reason.  Is the value of the 
Debugger > External/Remote > Server Port preference in the IDE matching the port 
set in wingdbstub.py (default for both should be 50005)?

You might also want to quit and restart Wing in case it's confused or for some 
reason failing to listen on the port.  Sending a bug report from Wing's Help 
menu with the error log should show us if that is the case.

Also check if another instance of Wing is running and has listened on that 
port.  That prevents the second+ instance from listening on the same port.

Please let me know if this does not help.
