upgraded from Python 2.5/IPython 0.09 (via complete unintstall/re-install), 
where tab completion was working correctly. Under IPython 0.10, though, no tab 
completion.Some other details:  - Pyreadline 2.6 is installed  - Command 
history (and up/down arrow navigation) is working  - Color is also working  - 
ipythonrc.ini in my user directory has the following settings (among others):

what else to try. Anyone else seeing this?Thanks,Dan

I found this in my notes from the first time I installed IPython: "To enable 
tab completion, uncomment 'import ipy_defaults' in the file ~/.ipython/

Hope this helps,
