Using Powershell, you have to quote arguments containing a colon.  Instead, try
    ipy.exe "-X:TabCompletion"

This was not defined in 1.1.1 either.  In fact, it's defined for
CPython as pure Python in the file os.py.  We're not yet distributing
the .py files from the standard Python library with IronPython, but if
you use os.py from the 2.4.4 distribution, os.walk will probably work
correctly under IronPython.

It certainly looks wrong and I'll take a look at it in the morning.
