I just downloaded and installed the latest and greatest ipy, v0.7.3
for win32, and when I try and use the $ or $$ capture commands as
described in the manual
(http://ipython.scipy.org/doc/manual/node12.html) I get the error
message below. This was an upgrade from v0.7.2, which I didn't
uninstall first. Maybe that wasn't such a great idea?
