Is it possible to get the application icon to show when testing?

When I run my GTK3 python script in WingIDE, the window that opens shows a generic Python icon:

When I build the app with Pyinstaller, I can insert the icon in the process, and the built application appears with the correct program icon. I'm wondering, is there any way to get WingIDE to display the program icon in the title bar when it is running and debugging the script?

Not that I know of, without changing the icon for Python itself. That could of course be done if you run a custom install of Python when debugging your app, but I doubt it's worth the trouble.

Wing also shows the generic Python icon when run in its debugger (we develop it with itself, of course). I've just gotten used to it, although in our case it does have the advantage of being a way to know which one is the debug process.
