I have run the test, and it failed 13 times out of 13. In all cases the 
source of the error was a missing package:

   File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
   File "IPython/testing/iptest.py", line 519, in run_iptest
ImportError: cannot import name globalipapp

Where should this be gotten from? It seems not to be a standard python 
package. However,

 > iptest all

returns OK. Is this what is supposed to happen? The docs are a bit 
inconsistent on this issue.

IPython doesn't work anymore with earlier versions of tornado, but I 
could fix that with

 > pip install tornado
