PythonWin debugger holds onto global logging objects too long

I use PythonWin to debug the Python scripts we write.  Our scripts often use the log2py logging package.  When running the scripts inside the debugger, we seem to get one logging object for every time we run the script.  The result is that after running the script five times, the log file contains five copies of every message.  The only way I know to clean this up and get only a single copy of each message is to close PythonWin and restart it.

What do I have to do in my scripts to clean up the logging objects so that I never get more than one copy of each message in my log files?

Thank you very much!
