Sorry for writing twice in a row.  I realized I had recent CVS scipy running 
on my work box, so after a quick ssh into it, things seem to be looking much 
better (scipy CVS, scipy ipython here):

In [1]: import scipy

In [2]: help('scipy.integrateMISSPELLED.odeint')
no Python documentation found for 'odeint.scipy.integrateMISSPELLED'

In [3]: help('scipy.integrate.odeint')

---> This opened up the help page correctly.

This behavior seems as normal as I can expect it.  Let me know if you find 
other cases where the behavior is sub-optimal, and I'll track them down.
