`M-x term' still works.

I hadn't tried py-shell before, and it works fine.  But if I edit a
.py file and hit `C-c C-c', that's when I get control characters, but
no color.

The same thing happens if I do the above with the python-mode.el and
ipython.el that you sent.

The only other thought is that I have a few emacs packages installed,
such as eieio, semantic and speedbar.  Should I see what happens with
them removed?
