Thanks for tracking that down. Komodo's variable viewer (in the Debug
Output tab) was trying to get information about the "server" object's
attributes. "server" is an xmlrpclib.ServerProxy object. Because of
xmlrpclib.ServerProxy's __getattr__ -- which returns a remote method
callable for each call -- Komodo was unnecessarily resulting in calls to
the server. This will be fixed in the next release so that no remote
calls are made on the "server" object unless the you specifically
request this in the variable view by opening the "server" items tree
view in the "Locals" or "Globals" tabs.
