And if you look at the code, that's inside the IPShellWX class, so you
must have been running inside of pylab with a WX* backend.

Note that I'm not disputing the presence of a threading bug, and in
fact I think I may know what's going on.  I'm just saying that it's
/impossible/ for this kind of bug to appear with Tk, because we don't
do any threading whatsoever with Tk backends.
