[IPython-user] Embedded IPython and readline under MacOS-X

Here is a strange behaviour of IPython under MacOS-X:
- If I start IPython in a shell, with ipython script, readline is available
and completion and history work fine.
- If I start IPython from IPShellEmbed class, then readline is not
available, so completion and history do not work.
Under Linux, readline is available in both cases. Why not under MacOS-X ?
Could it be a system config problem ? Could someone try this code under
from IPython.Shell import IPShellEmbed
argv = ["-pi1", ">>> ", "-po", " "]
ipshell = IPShellEmbed(argv)
Is readline available ?
