For the record to the list, since I suspect others may run into this:

The problem was on Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bits) with Gnome 3.8.4 (Ubuntu 
2013-12-05), Compiz, and Qt version 4.8.4.

The solution was to run Wing with the --private-qt command line option 
or set the Use System Qt preference to Use Wing's Private Qt.

Because of this and other problems we've seen, we're probably going to 
change the default for that preference.
