Yes, I've unfortunately noticed the same.  Just today I spent some time on the 
mailman interface, but I was not able to find an option to block 
non-subscribers posts.  I will contact the scipy administrator to try and find 
out if he can disable it internally. Or if anyone knows how to do it and I 
just missed it, I'll be happy to hear about it, the mailing lists are managed 
by mailman.

But I'll do something about it asap.

Is this bug in the ipython setup.py, or in Gary's readline stuff?  I haven't 
noticed the behavior in ipython's setup.py, but I can double check.
