Unfortunately it looks like you have missed some case(s)

The following script demonstrates a problem


# -*- coding: ISO-8859-1 -*-
import sys

def opa():
     print sys.version

opa()


this script works properly when called with %run
but subsequent calls of opa() from the prompt fails
as shown below

       4 def opa():

         global sys.version = undefined
       6
       7 opa()

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'version'

A second problem is demonstrated below. Multiple calls to 
doctest.testmod() generates what look like a progess report on all calls 
after the first calls.

At first I tried to fix this by adding a reload(doctest) (test by 
uncommenting case2). This doesn't work at all from the ipython prompt, 
it causes tests that used to work to fail. This feels like it could be 
related to the previous error.

The solution seems to be to uncomment case 3 which resets a global 
variable in doctest.
