I don't know if this is good news or not, but it seems that you are  
lucky :-)

Unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean, my IPython w/ the Leopard  
fix doesn't exhibit this behavior. For instance, I can do this:

Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Oct  5 2007, 21:08:09)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.8.3.svn.r2919 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?         -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
%quickref -> Quick reference.
help      -> Python's own help system.
object?   -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.

Are you saying that you can't?
