[SciPy-user] How to get sqrt(-1) = 1j per default?

In an "ipython -pylab -p scipy" console I get
In [1]: sqrt(-1)
Out[1]: nan
but I would prefer 1j as the result. This is achieved by
In [2]: from scipy import *
After that I get
In [3]: sqrt(-1)
Out[3]: 1j
I found out that the ipython option -p scipy executes the startup script
Python25\Lib\site-packages\IPython\Extensions\ipy_profile_scipy.py
which contains
ip = IPython.ipapi.get()
try:
ip.ex("import math,cmath")
ip.ex("import numpy")
ip.ex("import scipy")
ip.ex("import numpy as np")
ip.ex("import scipy as sp")
ip.ex("from numpy import *")
ip.ex("from scipy import *")
print('... import * done')
Here the command "from scipy import *" is the last executed command as in my
interactive session above. Why is this startup script not sufficient to have
sqrt(-1)=1j right from the console start??
What I should do additionally to achieve this?
