Never mind, I think I spoke too soon.  Filename completion seems to be just 
fine, I might have had stale files around.

I've only noticed one problem: if I hit C-c C-c in a python file, _without_ 
having manually started ipython (via C-c !) first, ipython.el does activate 
ipython, but it seems not to configure it properly.  In such cases, instead of 
the colored prompts I get a mess of escapes on screen:

I wonder if you know what to do about this one.  I often kill the ipython 
session to flush big things from memory, and sometimes I forget to manually 
restart it.

Other than that, I'm really hooked.
