Hi guys,

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I am used to copy-pasting
things like:

>>> a = {'X':1,
...      'Y':2}

in doctest_mode.  This used to work in IPython 10.2:

In [1]: doctest_mode
*** Pasting of code with ">>>" or "..." has been enabled.
Exception reporting mode: Plain
Doctest mode is: ON
>>> >>> a = {'X':1,
... ...      'Y':2}
>>>

but now:

In [1]: doctest_mode
Exception reporting mode: Plain
Doctest mode is: ON
>>> >>> a = {'X':1,
... ...      'Y':2}
  File "<ipython-input-2-cae42d271a53>", line 2
    ...      'Y':2}
    ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Is there some change that I missed that makes that bad to do?

See y'all,

Matthew
