Thanks for the confirmation.

WINDOWS USERS: please note that I'm thinking about making Gary's readline 
(which in turn requires ctypes) REQUIREMENTS for ipython.  It makes ipyhton 
under windows provide most of the linux functionality, and it finally seems to 
work pretty well.

If anyone objects, now is the time to say so.

Bummer.  I'll try to borrow again a windows computer to see if I can test 
this.  I suspect the problem is the expansion of '~' under Windows.  Please 
try to see if you can set this path explicitly, since I suspect that '~' 
doesn't expand to anything sensible under Windows.
