Hi all,

There was an incompatible change in pysh.py for 0.6.11, but since this lives 
in $HOME/.ipython, it doesn't get automatically upgraded.  You may experience 
problems with tab-completion.

To fix this, simply delete $HOME/.ipython/pysh.py and copy the new one from 

Under *nix, sys.prefix is typically /usr or /usr/local, while for Win32 it's 
often C:\PythonNN, but this will vary depending on your installation.  You can 
find it simply in python via

import sys
print sys.prefix

Thanks to Ville Vainio for tracking this down, and sorry it slipped past.
