because it's a variable that (as far as I know) is only tweakable when
python itself starts up. Try:
python -u `which ipython`
this will run ipython with unbuffered output.
But perhaps there is a way to change the buffering status of stdout
that I'm not aware of. If this is really happening, it was certainly
