That was the problem. I thought I remembered copying *all* the
configuration files from laptop to desktop a while back, but I had only
copied a subset of profiles. That meant I had a newer version of
ipythonrc on the desktop machine (I guess I installed ipython there
later). Copying the newer file on to the laptop has made them both
behave correctly now.
I suppose this makes the point that it is up to individual users to be
aware of the need to and remember to update their ~/.ipythonrc/* files
whenever updating the whole package(?).

It does (and it did before I fixed the problem too).
