That's because when you create a new profile, the name you give it is
simply that: a name.  There's nothing special about the 'pylab' name
if you make a profile with that word, IPython will just make a new
empty profile named 'pylab', and it's up to you to decide what it
does.

At profile creation time, the name 'pylab' is no different from 'foo' or 'bar'.

You'll need to add whatever code you want to that profile manually,
such as hardcoding that pylab is activated, a preferred GUI, etc.

Cheers,
