Your symptoms are very, very strange. Please try to see if the you get
similar problems by running a trivial script that causes an exception, like
1/0. I want to make sure that we isolate this to ipython, and not something
That missing (Pdb) prompt in your system is _really_ strange, and it tells me
that somewhere, something is badly broken. But I have no clue what.
There are also hints of COM objects in your system:
<unknown>> in Item(self, Index)
I wonder if those are the ones causing the Ctrl-C problems. It may be that
one of those is loading a SIGINT handler, thus messing up python's own.
Please try to reproduce these symptoms with as small a script as you can, and
hopefully something that doesn't require any of your own data or personal
libraries. Only that way can we isolate it, and perhaps either I or another
user can think of a solution.
If you can reproduce it, please post exactly both the script used and your
screen grabs with the results.
