No worries, this is actually very useful, and we appreciate it greatly.

No problem, objc really means the python bindings, which are normally
only available on OSX.  So you're fine.

OK, I'm officially stumped.

I've run the tests on Ubuntu 32, Ubuntu64, Fedora11/64, OSX 10.6 and
Windows XP, and I can't reproduce this.

I'm downloading a Fedora12 ISO and will try to build a VirtualBox
installation of it, but if anyone beats me to the solution I'd be
grateful, as I need to switch gears to other pressing matters right

Gokhan, in the meantime, just try to use this new ipython and let us
know in general use how it behaves, if things work well or not, etc.
File bugs at will :)  Any feedback is much appreciated.
