You may have already noticed, but %pdb is systematically crashing.
I'm getting the dreaded:

*** ERROR ***
This version of pdb has a bug and crashed.
Returning to IPython...
WARNING: Failure executing file: <error.py>

on 2.4 and 2.5 for even the most trivial tests.  I won't be able to
debug this before I leave, but I know it was working fine not very
long ago, b/c I use %pdb pretty regularly.  You might have an idea of
what happened here...
