Hello good folks,

I've decided to learn python and found that ipython is the environment  
to work in. I've got everything working fine (tab completion, etc.)  
but for some reason the "u" key doesn't function from within ipython;  
the "U" key does, oddly enough.

If I start ipython with "ipython -noreadline", then the "u" key does  
work but, of course, no tab completion.

It's kind of hard to function without the "u" key so if someone has a  
suggestion...

This is what I have in my /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/  directory:

Macintosh-4:~ gary$ ls -al /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/
