[wingide-users] Wing crashing on kubuntu 12.04 when starting debug session

Was this problem ever solved? I'm having the same issue with KDE on Ubuntu
12.0.4 LTS and Wing4.1 (See below)...

Also the link https://wingware.com/doc/install/trouble-linux is not
available any longer....

Many Thanks,

George H.

bash> 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 13746 error_code 3 request_code 152 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() function.)
