I can a bit more information:

resting ~/Projects/scipy/conference $ ipython -pylab
from enPython 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Oct  5 2008, 19:24:49) 
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

?         -> 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.

  Welcome to pylab, a matplotlib-based Python environment.
  For more information, type 'help(pylab)'.

In [1]: from enthought.mayavi import mlab
In [2]: s = mlab.test_surf()

In [3]: s.actor.actor.<tab>
The program 'python' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)'.
  (Details: serial 6858 error_code 10 request_code 128 minor_code 5)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
