No, this is because we are using a custom subclass of the IPython
frontend in Mayavi that is incompatible with the current IPython
frontend. The problem is that this class was written by Vibha to add
features to the IPython frontend (namely continuation lines) by monkey
patching it. I have added the corresponding feature to the main IPython
frontend, but as a result the custom subclass is partly broken. Vibha and
I are aware of this issue, and we'll have to discuss what the right way
to avoid problems is. Maybe a check on IPython's version number.

Sorry for these issues. The last edition of the IPython frontend was not
terribly mature, and resulting to monkey patching it was not an ideal
solution :(.
