When attempting to download collections from within WingIDE receive error.

import nltk aborted (disconnected)

I have also tried nltk.download_shell() nltk.download_shell()

NLTK Downloader

d) Download l) List u) Update c) Config h) Help q) Quit

Downloader> l aborted (disconnected)

In either case after the error is reported, the python shell is no longer responsive and the shell needs to be restarted.

My configuration: WingPro (rev 979f106f1aaa) Python 3.10.2 (tags/v3.10.2:a58ebcc, Jan 17 2022, 14:12:15) [MSC v.1929 64 bit (AMD64)]

As a work around, everything works outside of Wing by running python from the cmd prompt

Kindest, Chet

I can confirm that the problem happens with 64-bit Python 3.10 on Windows (but not with 32-bit Python 3.9). The segfault occurs in the elementtree / expat library, but it's not immediately clear what's causing it. We'll continue to look into it.

This should be fixed in 8.3.1, which will be out soon
