I can not reproduce this problem but I'm on XP on 32 bit machine.
However I see the c:\python26\script directory in the traceback and this 
made me think that it could be a setuptools problem. I have seen strange 
things if you launch ipython using the exe file that setuptools 
generates. Can you confirm wether you are using that exe file? If you 
are can you try launching ipython without it.
