Well, I can use ^R right from the beginning. Strange...

No, I was using one version of IPython (0.6.15) in Python 2.3 and the
other (0.7) in Python 2.4. So, when I've made the report I was working
with exactly the same setup.

Yup, it does. Entering IPython 0.7 with the flag -qthread, makes
things go well again :-). Without this flag, I get to wrong behaviour.

I'm using a quite up-to-date Debian GNU/Linux unstable. If you want me
to make other tests, just ask.
