At that point, you need to use python's exception inspection machinery. 
IPython feeds entire blocks for execution to the interpreter, so it can't know 
at what line the error occurred.  But that information is stored in the 
traceback objects, so you can retrieve it.  Look at ultraTB.py for details of 
how ipython builds that information for display.
