I'm afraid that given my ignorance of all things win32 and the lack of
a regular working setup for the OS I won't be able to help you here
beyond what Pete had done.  I understand your frustration, and I'd
love to have a solution for you, but unfortunately I don't.  I happen
to regularly use ipython inside Emacs, but under Linux only, and I'm
at a loss to figure out what can be the problem in your case.

However, at least we can help with that last question: after a bunch
of travel/family stuff I'm back to a more regular schedule and would
like to get a release out the door ASAP.  I'll be sending a separate
email to the -dev list  about it, but you can expect a release of
0.8.2 soon.  I'll make a test build of the current code for all
platforms tomorrow, and we'll coordinate with everyone else to get the
official release made shortly.

Sorry again to hear of your problems.  Hopefully someone will come up
with the magic combo to address the issue and we'll be then able to
document it for future users, in case there was something specific
about your configuration that was preventing things from working.
