Thanks for your reply. I've done some more google research and found
that this is actually a rather old problem
(<http://projects.scipy.org/ipython/ipython/ticket/56>). It seems to be
rooted in web.py messing with stdout to do some wsgi related stuff.
Apparently there even exists some patch for web.py to fix this.

Since it obviously hasn't anything to do with IPython I'm sorry for
having brought it up in the first place. Thank you very much, however,
for pointing me into the right direction :)
