Item 3 has "compute" two times.

==========
If #2 succeeds, compute user_variables and user_expressions are computed.
==========

Is this somewhere in the git repo? Maybe next time I could immediately 
provide a patch and pull request.

BTW, this sentence does not specify what happens, if #2 does not 
succeed. In fact, with that sentence it would be perfectly valid if 
user_variables is evaluated and user_expressions is not. Even if IPython 
produces a segfault in case "#2 does not succeed" would be a valid 
implementation of the "Execution semantics".
