Right. It was extremely annoying, I lost many sessions that way, so I
basically stopped using "?". It is very easy to trigger this in sympy
(with ipython 0.8.2), so I think it has something to do with unicode
printing. Anyway, I don't have time to dig into this either, so I am
glad it's finally fixed.
