Turn off auto-evaluate in debugger?

Is there a way to tell Wing not to auto-evaluate a variable in the debugger? Here's my use case: I have a complicate Django ORM query....something like this:

my_results = Foo.objects.filter(....)

And I'm apparently getting a very bad query plan when I execute it. So what I want to do is set a breakpoint and look at my_results.query, but as soon as I type

>>> my_results

Wing stops. I'm assuming it is trying to evaluate the value of my_results so that it can help with auto-completion, but it's actually causing the underlying query to execute.

UPDATE: I think I have a little workaround. If I type str(my_results.query) into a text editor, then copy-and-paste that into the debug console, I get my SQL.

In this case, you probably want to toggle auto-completion to off in the shell via the Options menu. Trying to get the attributes of the object is probably triggering the underlying query.
