Yup, those are exactly the values I found.

Another observation: I just double-checked and I'm getting exactly the 
same problem when I run XEmacs in text console with TERM=ansi. Under 
that configuration, the colorization of the ipython buffer within xemacs 
is a bit off -- in "In [2]:", for instance, only the "2]:" are colored 
blue. I'm not sure if this is a clue to XEmacs's parsing problem.

A second point: On the first call to py-execute buffer (say), I get the 
usual message " ### working on region in file [tempfile]". The second 
call then fails, as I described. But when I call py-clear-queued, 
minibuffer message tells me that _2_ queued files were cleared. So this 
again confirms that the first operation is never terminating in the eyes 
of the ipython parser.

And a hypothesis: Is it possible the .el files in ipython-emacs-0.3.tgz 
out of psync with ipython 0.50?
