I'm getting consistent seg faults when running ipython when started with
'-pylab' profile. The problem appears when I hit ctrl-C to abort some
operation or just to skip out the current command. That's an example:

$ ipython -pylab
Python 2.3.4 (#2, Sep 24 2004, 08:39:09)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.6.3 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?       -> Introduction to IPython's features.
@magic  -> Information about IPython's 'magic' @ functions.
help    -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.

Welcome to pylab, a matplotlib-based Python environment.
  help(matplotlib) -> generic matplotlib information.
  help(matlab)     -> matlab-compatible commands from matplotlib.
  help(plotting)   -> plotting commands.

and that happens on my Debian system and with other machine running RedHat
GNU/Linux as well. Both running ipython 0.6.3.
