OK, here's some more info; without any active GUI support, it happened again 
today, and I let Chris work from within GDB in order to check why ipython 
exits sometimes without even resetting the terminal correctly.

The result: "Program exited with code 01." - looks like sys.exit(1) (or the 
equivalent in C in some library) being called.  Probably some extension 
installed a signal handler (we suspect openmesh).

To make this thread at least slightly on-topic again: could such things be 
trapped/recognized/warned about in ipython?

Have a nice day,
