You can use e.g. 

  readline_parse_and_bind "\C-l": dump-functions

in ipythonrc to check which function is bound to alt-p/ctrl-P, post the result 
and/or change as desired with the same function.

(On my system, I get 'dump-macros can be found on "\M-p".', which may be due 
to an inputrc in /etc or $HOME, see "man readline".)
