On what platform (hardware/OS) is this?  Python version?  The same
combination works fine for me.  Given that ipython has no C code at
all, it can't directly segfault.  From your description, this is a bug
in the underlying readline library (which ipython does call into).
I've reported readline bugs in the past, but to my knowledge all have
been fixed in the current python release; if you can reproduce this
reliably, and with a current readline version, you should report it to
the python bug tracker (they are getting ready for the 2.5 release).

Well, there have never been any ipython lists at SF, so that would be
why you couldn't make it work.  The ipython homepage has all the links
to the mailing lists, here again:

http://scipy.net/mailman/listinfo/ipython-dev - developers list

Note that you'll need to subscribe to actually post, we get too much
spam to allow non-subscriber posts.
