Mmh, I don't get this problem.  I'm using:

from python-mode.el:
(defconst py-version "$Revision: 4.22 $"
   "`python-mode' version number.")

from ipython.el:
(defconst ipython-version "$Revision: 1.8 $"
   "VC version number.")

Could you try this:

and let me know if it makes any difference?  The python-mode included in the 
ipython website is 4.20, which is what I thought Alex Schmolck wanted me to 
distribute.  But perhaps I screwed up once again this stupid file :(

If it helps, and doesn't break anything else, I'll update what's distributed.

Man, we really need these changes propagated to the python-mode mainline, so 
that I can stop worrying about this (and making mistakes which waste 
everybody's time!)

This one, I still see with the version I have.  So no clue there.



ps. A. Schmolck is off-line for a month, so if the file I provided doesn't 
help, we're up the proverbial creek on our own :)
