Although I can't explicitly remember installing ctypes, I have a  
vague memory of doing so ... doesn't numpy rely on it somehow?

Intel Mac, OS X.4.9
Python 2.4
Latest svn for IPython.

Seems to be working as advertised -- I have a "long  
computation" (something that spins around in a for loop for about 5  
mins), which I can ctrl-c out of .. I feel like I wasn't able to do  
this last night when I really wanted to (and had to just close out of  
the shell to stop it)
