This is based on an error from the debugtoolbar demo that will not run on Windows because path names containing ":" are illegal on Windows. Original issue Pylons/pyramid_debugtoolbar#58 (comment)

Thanks! I've fixed this in the master and the 1.3 branch. See 4321a44 for details.

Colour me stupid but I don't quite understand the logic of the chosen paths as they stand: "main:templates" doesn't look to me like a path (well, an old-style Mac OS one maybe) but like something out of setuptools. I'm guessing that that is the reason: mirroring some kind of egg structure? Anyway glad to have been able to help.
