I pin-pointed the problem quite clearly. Add the following test somewhere
in your test-suite:

def test_stupid():
    from IPython.ipmaker import make_IPython
    i = make_IPython()
    del i

... and the test we are talking about will fail.

This could be a bad interaction between nose, which does some IO magic,
and IPython. If anybody feels like helping me on that, please do: I am
loosing my evening on it.
