Hi Fernando,

I am using Python 2.3.4 on winXP. I uninstalled ctypes-0.6.3, installed 
0.9.1, and was able to start IPython (a big improvement over 
ctypes-0.9.0). I checked some of the autocomplete functionality, and it 
appears to be working. I dont know if I will get a chance to do a more 
thorough check... I am gleefully migrating to Gentoo.
