I tried -wthread yesterday - and had no problems with it; even multiple
igrid instances were possible. The only thing I see is the deprecated

~> ipython -wthread

IPython 0.7.4.svn.r2120 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?       -> Introduction to IPython's features.
%magic  -> Information about IPython's 'magic' % functions.
help    -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.
In [1]: ils
In [2]: ils + ienv

This was python 2.5 and wxPython with openSuSE 10.2...
The only thing I noticed was that the igrid help did not work if you
install the svn version of ipython - but this is because of the setup
script not copying it, I think.
