[IPython-dev] %load hangs in qtconsole

I've just built Python 2.7.9, iPython 2.3.1, PyQT 4.11.3 (against Qt
4.8.6) with matplotlib 1.4.2 etc on a Scientific Linux 6.4 system (64 bit).

What I'm finding is that any attempt to %load a Python script from
within the qtconsole hangs after displaying the final line of the
script. The script neither executes nor returns the command prompt.

>From within the command line ipython console there's no such problem.
Manually typing or pasting in contents to the qtconsole works and the
script executes as expected, it just hangs if %load is used.

Any ideas what might be causing this?
