One oddity. It appears that within a session with
--TerminalInteractiveShell.multiline_history=True, up arrow recalls
history line by line, not multi-line. But exiting and restarting
*does* get the multi-line history. I'm not sure why this happens or if
it's an IPython issue or setting. It doesn't happen on Unix, and I
can't see anything obvious in IPython, so I suspect pyreadline again,
but I'm not certain.
