Well, ipython _is_ 100% pure, pristine python code.  <TAB> calls the 
completion code, which ultimately will peek into the readline module, which 
does have a C component.  But that's part of python itself, not my code.

The question is, how in the world do I file a bug report against python on 
this, when I don't even know who may be causing it?  readline may not be the 
culprit: there are also pygtk and wx calls being made in there...

I hate threads.  I hate threads.  I hate threads.

Thanks, though.
