I suspect this has to do with the fact that the ipython support is only 
available for an old version of python-mode.  Unfortunately Alex Schmolck 
tried to get those patches accepted by the mainline project, but they dropped 
the ball on his efforts, and he is unavailable right now.  This is a less than 
ideal situation for ipython's Emacs users, as it forces using an old version 
of python-mode, but it's beyond my expertise to fix, unfortunately.  If an 
emacs guru is willing to pursue this with the python-mode core team, and port 
the ipython support patch to the current versiono of python-mode, it would be 
a great contribution.
