[IPython-dev] Overzealous introspection

Hello all,

We noticed the following problem in IPython while defining a function
at the command-line:

In [1]: def foo(x):
   ...:     """
   ...:     Eh?
Object `Eh` not found.
   ...:     """
   ...:     return 4

The function still gets defined.  I've verified that this is still an
issue in a vanilla (no Sage) installation of IPython 0.9.1.  Our
ticket for it can be found at
