Yes, that did help.  I had to do something similar to get vim to work
well with xdvi for inverse search.  This may be obvious to more
experienced vim users, but here is what I did in case this helps
anyone else:

define my fix_editor_hook (saved in a file in my pythonpath called
import os

def fix_error_editor(self,filename,linenum,column,msg):
    cmd='gvim --servername ipython --remote +%d %s'% (linenum,filename,)
call this code to set the hook:
import ipythonhooks
Start gvim with the server name ipython:
gvim --servername ipython

and then ipython and vim play nice together, ipython locates the file
and line number in the already open gvim.

I also set this in my .bashrc file to make starting vim easier:
alias ipvim="gvim --servername ipython"

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Ville.
