[IPython-dev] Subtle ls bug :(

Can you both try the following:

Just keep typing ls return.  Every so often I get:

In [28]: ls
IOError                                   Traceback (most recent call last)
console> in <module>()

in system(self, cmd)
     61         sys.stderr.flush()
     62         p = Popen(cmd, shell=True, stdout=PIPE, stderr=PIPE)
---> 63         for line in p.stdout.read().split('\n'):
     64             if len(line) > 0:
     65                 print line

IOError: [Errno 4] Interrupted system call

This only seems to show up when running the qt GUI mode.  I think this
one will be fun to debug :)
