I really apologize for the confusion.

As per MinRK, the actual fix is updating CodeMirror and have nothing to do
with the commit.
My mistake. I also had an updated version of CodeMirror. And I'd guess
browser cache was messing my tests.

Just in case, here are the steps to fix the issue:
==== Under root:  ====
cd ipython-0.13-py2.7.egg/IPython/frontend/html/notebook/static
mv codemirror  codemirror.orig
wget http://codemirror.net/codemirror.zip
unzip codemirror.zip
mv CodeMirror-2.3 codemirror

Update codemirror/mode/python/python.js  as per
codemirror.orig/README-IPython.rst.
 (it is a one-line change, add `\\?` to the end of singleOperators
definition at line 8 chr 62)
==================
