Great, thanks!

It works in Xemacs (with the caveat below).

Yup, I had the same problem.  Who knows why.  I just moved it to the top, and 
it's OK now.  Thanks for the heads up, it saved me wasting time wondering what 
I'd done wrong.

Finally, is it possible for (x)emacs to complete like ipython does?  ipython 
(as of 0.6.11 or current CVS) completes on python names AND filenames, while 
ipython under xemacs only completes on attributes.  Is this doable/easy?
