This is really, really weird.  I can't think of anything in ipython which 
could cause this, and since your user seems to be narrowing it down to a pure 
python problem, I'll wait for now.  Keep me posted if you guys conclude that 
it's really an ipython-caused issue (I hope not :)

You can run ipython in 'classic' mode to get these prompts if you want:

[~]> ipython -classic
Python 2.2.3 (#1, Oct 15 2003, 23:33:35)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.6.1.cvs -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?       -> Introduction to IPython's features.
@magic  -> Information about IPython's 'magic' @ functions.
help    -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.

Launching IPython in classic mode. No config file read.
