They were fine in 7.1.fix1.  This is the advertised behavior for these:

IPython 0.7.1.fix1 -- 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.

In [1]: def foo(*x): pass

In [2]: /foo 1,2
------> foo(1,2)

In [3]: ;foo a b c
------> foo("a b c")

I'm reverting to using 0.7.1fix1, please let us know when this is working again.
