[IPython-user] %who et al give too much

Hi all

I have the problem that when using %who or %whos, alos %who_ls i do  
not only get the variables and functions defined by myself but also  
loads of of other functions and variables, like in the example at the  
bottom, where only 'data' is a variable i introduced.

I'm using a Mac OS 10.5.3 and ipython 0.8.3.svn.r3001. I've installed  
the readline-2.5.1-py2.5-macosx-10.5-i386.egg via easy_install ...

This is not how it was meant to be?! Anybody an idea?
