I've made some tests, and I can't make it work with ipython 0.6.13cvs. I 
always get an error on the second non blank line. With you test file, I 

In [2]:%runbatch /tmp/test.batch
This is being run by IPython
   File "<console>", line 1
     %sc a=ls i*py
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

With this file:

cd /home
cd /tmp

I get:

In [3]:%runbatch /home/fma/.PyMAD/batch.py
exceptions.NameError                                 Traceback (most recent 
call last)


NameError: name 'cd' is not defined

If I use %cd instead, I get a SyntaxError, like in your example. The first 
line is correctly executed, but not following.
