I have fixed IPython so you don't get that horrible recursive
traceback when readline is not installed, at least.

I guess your exception wasn't this one:

C:\ipython>python c:\Python25\Scripts\ipython a.py
<type 'exceptions.IndexError'>            Traceback (most recent call last)

<type 'exceptions.IndexError'>: tuple index out of range
WARNING: Failure executing file: <a.py>
