Great! Many thanks. I've just committed the fix into CVS.

Do you think we'll be able to get the GTK/win32 setup working? You probably
know that platform better than anybody else here, so I'm pretty useless on
this one. But it would be great to be able to make a final ipython release
before I get into the 'big cleanup', so that matplotlib users on all
platforms/backends can use pylab happily while I work on the cleanup.
ps. You have for me: Fernando Perez <fperez at pizero.colorado.edu>.
You should switch to Fernando.Perez at colorado.edu, which should be a more
stable address for the long term (pizero was a local Physics server, and that
account may disappear in the future).
