[IPython-user] some behaviour breaking IPython?

I've noticed if I use IPython for a while with TkAgg on OS X (via - 
pylab) I eventually start seeing some odd behaviour, which I have to  
restart the interpreter to remedy.

#1) When I've got a script running that plots every once in a while  
but prints constantly, the printing doesn't happen immediately, but  
seems lagged and chunked. So, I won't see anything for a while but  
then I'll see a huge chunk of buffered prints come at me all at once.  
Plots still seem to happen on schedule.
#2) exit() gives me the usual "are you sure you want to exit [y/n]"  
but hitting y<ENTER> or simply <ENTER> no longer quits. Ctrl+D  
followed by a confirmation, however, does.

I can't reliably reproduce this behaviour which is why I'm unsure how  
to correct it. Has anyone else seen this?
