Hi Danny,

sorry for the late reply,  I had no net access for a while.

If you installed it from the win32 .exe installer, it should have made
a shortcut for the main IPython script in your start menu.  You can (I
think, I'm writing this from a linux box) copy that shortcut with
another name and edit its properties so that it passes the -wthread

Let me know if this doesn't work and I'll try to do a win32 test to
give you more precise instructions in a day or two.
