[IPython-user] "Bus error" on Mac OS X

I have installed Python 2.3.5 using fink, and then installed
ipython-0.6.15 using that. When executing ipython (from /sw/bin/ipython),
it seems to start okay. However, entering any command such as "1+1" or
"import math"  results in a short delay and then a "Bus error" message.

Any ideas what this could be and how to debug this further?

Thank you,


P.S. The error in verbose:
