Well, ipython _is_ 100% pure, pristine python code. <TAB> calls the
completion code, which ultimately will peek into the readline module, which
does have a C component. But that's part of python itself, not my code.
The question is, how in the world do I file a bug report against python on
this, when I don't even know who may be causing it? readline may not be the
culprit: there are also pygtk and wx calls being made in there...
I hate threads. I hate threads. I hate threads.
