Problem restarting WingIDE after a system crash

I have an intermittent hardware problem with my Mac Pro that causes it to reboot about once a week.  The last two times this has happened, WingIDE (v6.0.5) has been open and running.  Subsequently, it won't launch (no error message if I try to "open" it from a terminal window).  The first time this happened, I downloaded a fresh copy, and finally got _it_ to launch.  This has now happened again and I'd like to avoid having to download again.  I assume there is an application support file someplace that needs to be deleted (or something similar).  I'd appreciate any thoughts or help you could offer.
When I search the system log I find:

 wing-internal-python[895]: assertion failed: 16G29: libxpc.dylib + 35110 [BF896DF0-D8E9-31A8-A4B3-01120BFEEE52]: 0x20

Thanks,

The .dmg that you download can be saved so you don't need to download again -- just copy the app from the .dmg into /Applications  This doesn't address why Wing fails to launch however.  Could you try downloading and overwriting the app in /Applications to see if that fixes the problem this time?

In effect, that's what I did this second time.  Unpacked the dmg, in my Downloads folder, renamed the WingIDE.app to WingIDE.old.app and then dropped the newly unpacked WingIDE.app into the applications folder.  That prompted MacOS to tell me again that WingIDE was an application downloaded from the Internet; no surprise.  However, WingIDE still refuses to launch.  Again, I get a notice in the system log: wing-internal-python[895]: assertion failed:

16G29: libxpc.dylib + 35110 [BF896DF0-D8E9-31A8-A4B3-01120BFEEE52]: 0x20

Which is followed by a note that "--- last message repeated 11 times ---"

Does it work to start Wing from a terminal with this command line? /Applications/WingIDE.app/Contents/MacOS/WingIDE

No.  Interestingly enough, however, what I do get is the following response from Bash:

Last login: Fri Aug 11 14:17:29 on tty??

and if I issue that command again, I get

Last login: Mon Aug 14 14:24:54 on ttys002

Could you try: /Applications/WingIDE.app/Contents/Resources/wing --verbose

Interesting - that worked, and generated a huge amount of text.  How can I best sent it to you? Or do you not want it?

You should have it: Subject "Verbose output from terminal Wing launch"
