Howdy all,

I am having the same problem as others with IPython not playing nicely with pdb in Python 2.5 on windows.
I tried checking out the lastest development version via subversion and that seems to work fine.
When I get to the install, if I type setup.py at a command prompt, I get.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "E:\slor\setup.py", line 35, in <module>
    if os_name == 'windows' and sys.argv[1] == 'sdist':
IndexError: list index out of range

Any hints on how I'm screwing this up.
