Debugging a curses application in python

Hello all,

I'm trying to debug a python application which uses the curses module
under Linux. I'm having trouble, since I can't get any debugger to
work. Is there a way to separate the output of an application from the
debugger. In gdb, the tty command would allow me to specify a separate
tty to write the curses output to. Any suggestions?

Just to let anyone know who runs across this post, winpdb from (http://
www.digitalpeers.com/pythondebugger/) solved my issue.
