while packaging 0.8.4 for Debian, we run into this minor problem with
the manpage:

$ man --warnings -l doc/ipython.1.gz > /dev/null
<standard input>:55: warning: `wxversion'' not defined
<standard input>:116: warning: `str(43)'' not defined
<standard input>:223: warning: `sh' not defined
<standard input>:234: warning: `snapshot'' not defined

One possible way to fix these is attached in the patch. Please apply,
or let's discuss how to fix it some other way. The reason is that
otherwise we are getting these warnings in Debian:

$ lintian ipython_0.8.4-1_i386.changes
W: ipython: manpage-has-errors-from-man
usr/share/man/man1/ipython.1.gz 55: warning: `wxversion'' not defined

All packages should be lintian clean -- but if this is not a bug, we
can add a lintian override.
