Hey guys,

could one of you who uses windows and knows about our pyreadline (esp.
Jorgen) have a look at this?  The python Enthought edition is readying
for a 1.0 release and they ship ipython/pyreadline, and they're having
problems.  It would be nice if we could sort this out before 1.0.

Some of the new weirdness in 1.0.0b4:
On windows XP on my laptop, when I hit tab, the cursor advances only a
single space; however, when I start typing, the characters I type
appear at a position 3 spaces after the cursor position.  Needless to
say, this is extremely disorienting, especially since the cursor
starts advancing over the previously typed text (assuming I've typed
more than 3 letters).
