Bug report from a user - I'm forwarding it just so it's recorded here and we
don't miss it. I told him not to bother with filing on the tracker, as this
should get taken are of soon by me or Ville, before the 0.7.1 bugfix release.

Hi Fernando. I think I have a bug, I wanted to check
that I'm not being foolish before I file a bug report.
I've upgraded from 0.6.15 to 0.7, and I've lost the
functionality for editing the previous temporary file.
Normally I'd start to prototype new code using:
> # do some work in Textpad on Windows
> edit -p # to continue working on that previous
but now if I use -p it just starts a new temporary
file, rather than using the code I'd generated
previously. If I edit a file that I have saved, I can
use -p to call up that file, so '-p' is still an
option in your code, it just works differently I
I've upgraded to 0.7 on two machines and the behaviour
is the same on both machines, previously it worked on
I see a possibly-relevant Changelog entry:

Is it something to do with %edit not returning file
contents for temp files?
Whilst going over you site looking for tips on this
problem, I noticed two broken links:
# If you want to browse the whole repository with a
clean inteface, use this Trac link.
# The new IPython Trac system is here, with a Wiki for
development, SVN access and more.
both give 404 Not Found reports.
Assuming both are bugs, I'll figure out how to file a
bug report on each if you'd like?
I'd like to take a moment to say Thanks to you - I've
been using IPython for over a year now, it is a
fantastic system! I do a lot of research/development
code using Python in a commercial physics research
lab, your software certainly makes my life a lot more
